Description Andre Robatino 2015-12-18 12:48:04 EST
Description of problem:
qemu-2.4.1-3.fc23 was pushed to stable updates on December, then shortly afterwards 2.4.1-2 was pushed to stable. As a result, a distro-sync wants to downgrade to 2.4.1-2.

Version-Release number of selected component (if applicable):
Comment 1 Andre Robatino 2015-12-18 12:50:15 EST
Should read "pushed to stable updates on December 14".

See my comment in https://bodhi.fedoraproject.org/updates/FEDORA-2015-b2e8518b8e .
Comment 2 Dennis Gilmore 2015-12-18 12:54:12 EST
In this case bodhi should never have allowed qemu-2.4.1-2.fc23 to go stable
Comment 3 Luke Macken 2015-12-18 13:22:54 EST
So basically a +1 of -2 triggered the autokarma threshold and queued it up for stable two days after -3 was pushed. Bodhi needs to be smart enough to handle this scenario by either skipping the tagging, or ejecting the update from the push entirely.

Something similar happened again - libpng-1.6.19-1.fc23 was downgraded to libpng-1.6.17-3.fc23 after the latter was submitted for stable. See

https://bodhi.fedoraproject.org/updates/FEDORA-2015-4ad4998d00 (libpng-1.6.17-3.fc23)
https://bodhi.fedoraproject.org/updates/FEDORA-2015-9199a1bfe1 (libpng-1.6.19-1.fc23)

Dennis: please fix. Thanks.

Same thing just happened with bzip2 - the packager submitted an older version for stable and it downgraded a newer version. The version in stable is now -18.

https://bodhi.fedoraproject.org/updates/FEDORA-2015-4a9c774398 (bzip2-1.0.6-18.fc23)
https://bodhi.fedoraproject.org/updates/FEDORA-2015-be3a6f6ed8 (bzip2-1.0.6-19.fc23)

Dennis: please fix. Thanks.
