Description James Bowes 2007-04-13 11:23:44 EDT
If a channel references a comps file in the db, but the comps file does not
exist on disk, an unhandled exception is raised, preventing the repomd.xml file
from being properly generated.

In webqa, rhel-i386-client-5 is in this state. Subscribe a system to that
channel and ensure that yum update works.
Comment 1 James Bowes 2007-04-13 11:27:33 EDT
The error you don't want to see is:
Cannot open/read repomd.xml file for repository: rhel-i386-client-5
