Description Bernard Johnson 2007-03-22 18:03:07 EDT
Description of problem:
If a mock root is cached, any changs to the cfg file that would change the
composition of that root file are ignored.  For example, if you change repo
configuration, the next run using autocache will ignore those changes and use
whatever is in the root cache.

Specifically, I tested this by changing:
config_opts['chroot_setup_cmd'] = 'groupinstall build'
config_opts['chroot_setup_cmd'] = 'groupinstall build build-minimal'

New files that should have been in the root next time I ran with --autocache
were not there until I rebuilt the root cache.

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

How reproducible:

Steps to Reproduce:
1. run mock with --autocache, cache is created
2. change a cfg file used to build with, change something that would affect root
3. build with new cfg file (and --autocache), changes are not in affect as old
root is cached
Expected results:
automatically rebuild root cache when cfg file is newer than root cache, or at
least maybe an --ignorestale option.
Comment 1 Clark Williams 2007-03-25 11:10:51 EDT
Good point. I'll add some logic to the next release to check the timestamp of
the root cache versus the .cfg that controls it.
Comment 2 Lubomir Kundrak 2008-02-27 12:53:56 EST
Seems like this already happens, not?
Comment 3 Clark Williams 2008-03-07 15:36:05 EST
Latest version has code to check both the cfg file and the default.cfg file and
will rebuild the cache if either is newer than the cache file.
