Description Omair Majid 2013-05-22 18:29:18 UTC
Description of problem:
I was trying to use pkgdb-cli to grant commit access for a package I own to a user (I have replaced the user name with ${USER} in this bug report), but pkgdb-cli kept telling me (incorrectly) that I do not have permissions to do so.

After getting frustrated, I switched to the online interface. The online interface provided me with a completely different error: 
"${USER} must be in one of these groups: ('cvsadmin', 'packager', 'provenpackager', 'newpackager') to hold the commit acl", which explains why the acl can not be granted.

Please fix pkgdb-cli to return this more relevant message rather than the very obtuse "you do not have permissions" message.

Version-Release number of selected component (if applicable):
packagedb-cli-1.4.1-2.fc17.noarch

How reproducible:
Every time.

Steps to Reproduce:
$ pkgdb-cli update ${PACKAGE} commit ${USER} --approve

Actual results:
"ACL request could not be Approved, do you have the rights to so?"

Expected results:
"${USER} must be in one of these groups: ('cvsadmin', 'packager', 'provenpackager', 'newpackager') to hold the commit acl"
