Description Jaroslav Rohel 2019-08-28 09:01:08 UTC
Description of problem:

The "--setopt" have a problem with repositories with dots in id. The option parser uses first dot as a delimiter.
Repository id may contain dots but option name can't. -> So, the last dot is delimiter and not the first one.
"--setopt=re.po.option=value " is parsed as repo id "re" and option "po.option". Correct result is repo id "re.po" and option "option".
