    Add --includepkg argument
    Recently, Fedora has been trying to do a 3 product split.  As part of
    that, lorax was changed to do "installpkg lorax-product-*" via
    I think that approach is awkward; a much simpler approach is to simply
    specify the product package as input to lorax on the command line, via
    external rel-eng scripts.
    This patch therefore adds --includepkg (and we should probably add an
    option to remove the implicit lorax-product-* glob).
Comment 2 Brian Lane 2015-10-16 20:48:19 EDT
It is actually named --installpkgs, the commit message is incorrect (because I missed updating it when I changed the name)
Comment 4 Peter Kotvan 2016-08-17 07:08:02 EDT
Verified on RHEL-7.3-20160811.0 with lorax-19.6.77-1.el7.
