Description of problem:
cockpit-appstream errata  currently ships the "cockpit-tests" subpackage in AppStream. This contains a few extra Cockpit pages mostly for testing a few areas of the API that are hard to reach from "normal" pages, so it's mostly a debugging tool. It's also being used by the integration tests (which are not shipped).
So it's fairly harmless, but Jan Scotka pointed out that we usually don't ship this kind of package in RHEL.
RHEL 7 errata (example: ) filter them out in the product listing.
Should that filtering be done for RHEL 8 as well? Or should I drop it from the .spec when building on RHEL? (That would then cause an rpmdiff change that needs REL-ENG waiving).
Do we have a preferred method for this?
This was explicitly listed in comps. I've submitted a CR to remove it.
Ah, I was looking in comps-rhel-8.0.xml.in before.
I see it here:
This in fact also has some other noise, packages which don't exist any more (cockpit-integration-tests and cockpit-docker); cockpit-ostree also currently doesn't exist, but may come back at some point.
This is Josh's CR: https://code.engineering.redhat.com/gerrit/#/c/156253/
It was merged, and current nightlies don't have it any more. Thanks!
