Last modified: 2015-11-16 16:41:00 EST
Description of problem:
When trying to sync repos,
Sync Status is "Sync incomplete"
Clicking on the task shows this error:
"getaddrinfo: Name or service not known"
Version-Release number of selected component (if applicable):
Steps to Reproduce:
1. enter faulty SMTP configuration for notifications
2. try to sync the repos
3. fails with error: "getaddrinfo: Name or service not known"
Sync fails when the SMTP configuration for notifications is not set correctly
Sync should still complete even if the SMTP configuration for notifications is not set correctly
The error message should be a little bit more obvious and point to the faulty SMTP configuration
