Description of problem:
lxc-clone in lxc package requires rsync to work
or it'll throw an exception.
And rsync is not in lxc's dependency tree
>repoquery --requires --recursive --resolve lxc | grep rsync
Version-Release number of selected component (if applicable):
lxc Version : 1.0.7
Steps to Reproduce:
1.dnf remove rsync
2.dnf install lxc lxc-templates
3.lxc-create -n fedora1 -t /usr/share/lxc/templates/lxc-fedora
4.lxc-clone -o fedora1 -n fedora2
lxc_container: bdev.c: rsync_rootfs: 2933 rsyncing /var/lib/lxc/fedora1/rootfs to /var/lib/lxc/fedora2/root
lxc_container: lxccontainer.c: copy_storage: 2489 Error copying storage
Created container fedora2 as copy of fedora1
you can fix it by installing rsync
Good catch. I will add rsync as a dependency.

This message is a reminder that Fedora 21 is nearing its end of life.
Approximately 4 (four) weeks from now Fedora will stop maintaining
and issuing updates for Fedora 21. It is Fedora's policy to close all
bug reports from releases that are no longer maintained. At that time
this bug will be closed as EOL if it remains open with a Fedora 'version'
Package Maintainer: If you wish for this bug to remain open because you
plan to fix it in a currently maintained version, simply change the 'version'
to a later Fedora version.
Thank you for reporting this issue and we are sorry that we were not
able to fix it before Fedora 21 is end of life. If you would still like
to see this bug fixed and are able to reproduce it against a later version
of Fedora, you are encouraged change the 'version' to a later Fedora
version prior this bug is closed as described in the policy above.
Although we aim to fix as many bugs as possible during every release's
lifetime, sometimes those efforts are overtaken by events. Often a
more recent Fedora release includes newer upstream software that fixes
bugs or makes them obsolete.
lxc-1.0.7-4.fc21 has been pushed to the Fedora 21 stable repository. If problems still persist, please make note of it in this bug report.
