Description John W. Lamb 2013-10-25 17:23:02 EDT
Description of problem:

Running yum-config-manager --setopt=repo.id.with.dots.enabled=0 repo.id.with.dots --save doesn't update the repo config file as expected.

Version-Release number of selected component (if applicable):
yum-utils-1.1.31-14 (Fedora)
yum-utils-1.1.30-14 (Red Hat 6.4)

How reproducible:

Add a repository with dots in the repoid, then try to adjust some attribute using yum-config-manager --setopt 

Steps to Reproduce:
1. Add a repo in /etc/yum.repos.d with a dot in the repoid (in RHEL, this was discovered with the OpenShift repos, e.g. rhel-server-ose-1.2-infra-6-rpms)
2. Try to adjust some option using yum-config-manager: yum-config-manager --setopt=rhel-server-ose-1.2-infra-6-rpms.enabled=0 rhel-server-ose-1.2-infra-6-rpms --save
3. Check the repo file to verify that the change did not get committed

Actual results:
The "enabled" option will remain unchanged

Expected results:
The "enabled" option will be written to file as "enabled=0"

Additional info:
As mentioned above, this impacts Fedora and RHEL.
Comment 1 Luke Meyer 2013-10-26 07:12:01 EDT
There is some indication that you should be able to work around this with wildcards, e.g. http://lists.baseurl.org/pipermail/yum-commits/2012-February/004559.html

At least with yum-utils-1.1.30-14.el6.noarch though, this doesn't work. Wildcard setopts are silently ignored. E.g.:

yum-config-manager  --setopt '*.exclude=bar' rhel-6-server-rpms --save
# that does nothing
yum-config-manager  --setopt 'rhel-6-server-rpms.exclude=bar' rhel-6-server-rpms --save
# that works

BTW, would it be too much trouble to get some kind of error indication when setopt is ignored? As it is, the only way you can tell you've made a typo or it didn't work is by checking the output value to see if it matches what you put in, which isn't great for scripted usage.

 Fixed upstream. It'll get back into F19 if/when we rebase yum.
