We have some B- and C- Series at v6.6 and a B-series at v6.7

The configuration of v6.7 looks weird, the ports are listed by intervals of 10.

Example:

#########################################################
->show version
Model           Serial #           Versions
--------------  -----------------  -------------------
B5G124-48P2     X                  Hw:BCM56514 REV 1
                                   Bp:02.02.15
                                   Fw:06.61.08.0013 *****
                                   BuFw:06.42.06.0008
                                   PoE:2_1

-> show config vlan
..
set vlan egress 12 ge.1.48 tagged
set vlan egress 12 ge.1.47 untagged
set vlan egress 130 ge.1.48 tagged
set vlan egress 130 ge.1.1-46 untagged
...

Model           Serial #           Versions
--------------  -----------------  -------------------
B5G124-48P2     X                  Hw:BCM56514 REV 1
                                   Bp:02.02.51
                                   Fw:06.71.04.0004 *****
                                   BuFw:06.42.06.0008
                                   PoE:2_1

-> show config vlan


...
set vlan egress 100 ge.2.2-11 untagged
set vlan egress 100 ge.2.12-21 untagged
set vlan egress 100 ge.2.22-31 untagged
set vlan egress 100 ge.2.32-34;ge.2.36-38;ge.2.40-43 untagged
set vlan egress 100 ge.2.44-47;ge.3.1-4;ge.3.6-7 untagged
...
#########################################################

Why?

This last type of configuration makes e.g. diffing two configs (like with Inventory Manager) really hard. You just have to remove a port from a VLAN to make it appear as if lots has changed...

(If you have like above:
ge.2.2-11 .... ge.2.12-21 ... ge.2.22-31 ...
by removing ge.2.8 you would generate:
ge.2.2-7 .... ge.2.9-18 ... ge.2.19-28 ...
