Description Michal Domonkos 2019-01-21 11:20:56 UTC
Description of problem:
Passing multiple pkgspecs to --whatrequires results in an empty list in the output.

Version-Release number of selected component (if applicable):

How reproducible:

Steps to Reproduce:
$ dnf repoquery --whatrequires dnf libdnf

Actual results:
No output.

Expected results:
A lot of matches should be printed.

Additional info:
This is a regression from the yum-based "repoquery" tool in RHEL-7 which does accept multiple pkgspecs with --whatrequires.

Comment 1 Michal Domonkos 2019-01-21 12:59:57 UTC
Just realized --whatrequires only takes one argument by design.  Still, we could at least make it an append option, so leaving it open for the time being.

Comment 2 Jaroslav Mracek 2019-04-09 19:05:16 UTC
I created a patch that adds support for multiple arguments or even for splitting arguments using comma. The new behavior is applicable for all --what* options of repoquery command. https://github.com/rpm-software-management/dnf/pull/1375

Comment 3 Jaroslav Mracek 2019-06-11 10:45:12 UTC
I also create CI-tests - https://github.com/rpm-software-management/ci-dnf-stack/pull/558
