Enh: add warning about removing contents on /var/log/rhr with "resolution" script
Last modified: 2007-04-18 12:59:19 EDT
Description of problem: It's certainly not a problem that the
resolution script removes the contents of /var/log/rhr/ when it
creates the RPM for submittal... but good U/I design generally
dictates that when data is about to be seriously modified, the user
receives _some_ notification it's about to happen and gets an
opportunity to abort the operation before it happens.
Version-Release number of selected component (if applicable):
# rpm -q rhr2
added to CVS; will now prompt user ensuring they are aware that
/var/log/rhr will be removed after building the results package.
This fix doesn't show up in the 0.9-14.2 RPMs posted to Rob's people
page. Is that intentional?
Yes and no; originally CVS was headed down the -15 route; since I
didn't want to introduce new packages in the middle and -15 wasn't
that well tested (turns out it's pretty busted) -14 was returned to
but unfortunately didn't inherit this change. This has been added to
the -14 tree now. I'll post new test packages later today.
Don't recall when initially added, but this is already in -17beta.
