Comment 1 David Lutterkort 2010-02-22 15:04:13 EST
Fixed with commit 6c7f09a9 upstream

This makes augeas treat empty lines from stdin the same as comments, i.e. ignore them.

augtool will still complain when you run 'augtool ""', since that generally indicates some problem higher up
Comment 2 David Lutterkort 2010-06-30 18:16:53 EDT
Fixed in augeas-0.7.1 which has been available for a while
