Description Luca Gioppo 2015-04-08 12:18:58 UTC
as described here:

Problem persist in 1.0.0-7.el6 but the fix is in augeas 1.2.0.

A port of the fix is needed for allowing tools like puppet and others to manage tomcat properties files that has this behaviour.

Comment 2 Dominic Cleal 2015-04-08 12:56:14 UTC
Fixed in 491df810

Comment 3 Hu Zhang 2015-04-09 09:39:12 UTC
Problem persists in the latest 6.7.0 errata build: augeas-1.0.0-9.el6.
Also check the fix 491df810, and it works well.

Comment 5 Hu Zhang 2015-05-05 06:00:13 UTC
Verified with augeas-1.0.0-10.el6

Steps to verify:
# augtool
augtool> set /augeas/load/Properties/lens Properties.lns
augtool> set /augeas/load/Properties/incl[last()+1] /tmp/test.properties
augtool> load
augtool> print /files/tmp/test.properties/
/files/tmp/test.properties/tomcat.util.scan.DefaultJarScanner.jarsToSkip = " < multi > "

Works as expected. So fixed.
