Packaging and Reports

Hello...I was wondering if someone could give me some guidance regarding packaging reports.

 

I just added a report in a managed package.  When I uploaded the package I noticed that the report and the custom report type was included in the package.  This made sense to me (since you need the custom report type for the report).  I then installed this new version into my test org and all worked as expected.

 

Next, I wanted to see what would happen when I made changes to BOTH the report and the custom report type.  To do this, I added fields X, Y and Z to the custom report type...and then added these same fields to the report itself.  I then uploaded the package again to my test org.  Unfortunately, the report update did not happen in my test org...although the update to the custom report type did include fields X, Y and Z.

 

So....I was curious to see if I did something wrong...or if managed custom reports cannot be modified after the first time they are added to a package?

 

Thanks in advance.
