Description Jakub Filak 2015-02-04 12:20:43 UTC
Description of problem:
An uber-cool script I am porting to DNF downloads debug info rpm from all defined repositories having ID matching string "*debug*". The script is run by regular users who don't necessary have the privileges to update repository settings and don't necessary understand to concept of repositories, debuginfo packages and other computer stuff, so the script must make decisions on behalf of its users. One of the crucial features is to do its best to finish downloading successfully without any obstructions such as abortions due to unavailability of a particular repository. An unavailable repositories isn't a big issue for the script because we usually need only a fraction of downloaded packages to generate a good backtrace (we download debuginfos for all dynamically linked objects but we need only those that are currently present on stack - but we don't know them until we generate a backtrace) and also matching ID to "*debug*" sometimes leads to enabling of low quality repositories.

Please make it possible to set 'skip_if_unavailable' repository flag in DNF API.
