Description Daniel Mach 2019-07-08 11:21:45 UTC
+++ This bug was initially created as a clone of Bug #1727137 +++

Description of problem:

dnf download ignores destdir argument when fetching remote packages through a local repository

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

How reproducible:

Steps to Reproduce:
1. Create a local repository using createrepo_c at /some/path

2. Merge a remote repository into it with mergerepo_c. Now you have a mix of some packages with just <location href="x86_64/foo-1.0.0-1.x86_64.rpm"> and some with <location xml:base="http://somewhere.else/" href="bar-2.0.0-2.x86_64.rpm">

3. dnf download --repofrompath="fred,file:///some/path" --repo fred --destdir /tmp foo bar

Actual results:

/some/path/x86_64/foo-1.0.0-1.x86_64.rpm is correctly copied to /tmp/foo-1.0.0-1.x86_64.rpm


http://somewhere.else/bar-2.0.0-2.x86_64.rpm is downloaded to /some/path/bar-2.0.0-2.x86_64.rpm


Expected results:

Both foo-1.0.0-1.x86_64.rpm and bar-2.0.0-2.x86_64.rpm should be copied to /tmp
