Whitelist 'type=*' option in config
Last modified: 2016-10-04 14:04:02 EDT
Description of problem:
Dnf will emits warnings (as I have been told) on unknown key=values in config.
We just merged to Copr this PR:
It would be nice if DNF will not emit such warning. I.e if you can whitelist type=* in config.
This option is used and recognized by zypper.
Are there description what this option should do?
Zypper is able to work with YaST, RPM-MD (yum) software repositories,
and plain directories containing .rpm files.
Repositories are primarily identified using their URI or alias. Alias
serves as a shorthand for the long URI or name of the repository. The
name of the repository should briefly describe the repository and is
shown to the user in tables and messages. The name is not required, and
if not known, the alias is shown instead. The alias is required and
uniquely identifies the repository on the system.
The alias, name, URI, or the number from zypper repos list can be used
to specify a repository as an argument of various zypper commands and
options like refresh, --repo, or --from.
-t, --type <type>
Type of repository (yast2, rpm-md, or plaindir). There are sev-
eral aliases defined for these types: yast2 - susetags, yast,
YaST, YaST2, YAST; rpm-md - repomd, rpmmd, yum, YUM; plaindir -
