Description Tomas Mlcoch 2013-09-30 08:51:52 EDT
Description of problem:
When I try to add an already compressed metadata file, the file decompressed firstly, and then added, but the compression suffix persist, so it is super confusing.

--no-compress option doesn't help.

Version-Release number of selected component (if applicable):
Name        : createrepo
Version     : 0.9.9
Release     : 21.fc19

How reproducible:

Steps to Reproduce:
modifyrepo --no-compress foobar.xml.gz rpms_sss/repodata

Actual results:
Decompressed foobar.xml is added with the original filename foobar.xml.gz

Expected results:
Something more sane. E.g. File is only copied and keeps its original name foobar.xml.gz (no decompression is done).
Comment 1 Zdeněk Pavlas 2013-09-30 11:29:23 EDT
Yep, modifyrepo is pretty buggy..  Fixed this also with other bugs:

- when the input file was compressed, it was transparently decompressed, but then the selected compression was not applied at all.

- open-size and open-checksum were calculated from the original compressed file.
