as described here:
Problem persist in 1.0.0-7.el6 but the fix is in augeas 1.2.0.
A port of the fix is needed for allowing tools like puppet and others to manage tomcat properties files that has this behaviour.
Fixed in 491df810
Problem persists in the latest 6.7.0 errata build: augeas-1.0.0-9.el6.
Also check the fix 491df810, and it works well.
Verified with augeas-1.0.0-10.el6
Steps to verify:
augtool> set /augeas/load/Properties/lens Properties.lns
augtool> set /augeas/load/Properties/incl[last()+1] /tmp/test.properties
augtool> print /files/tmp/test.properties/
/files/tmp/test.properties/tomcat.util.scan.DefaultJarScanner.jarsToSkip = " < multi > "
Works as expected. So fixed.
