[pre-ER1] Patching: attempt to apply broken cumulative patch results in inconsistent state of one-offs
Last modified: 2015-02-01 18:05:50 EST
attempt to install broken cumulative patch is correctly rejected but previously installed one-offs are partially invalidated (at least one-offs which add misc files)
see test CumulativePatchingScenariosTestCase#testOneOffInvalidCumulativePatch
it installs one-off that adds misc file then installs one-off that adds module
and then tries to install broken CP, CP is rejected but misc file added by first one-off doesn't exist
This is fixed in ER1, just cloning the issue for reference.
