Red Hat Bugzilla – Bug 35856
--whatprovides breaks for invalid param

This is Seawolf installed with up2date against ftp.beta
[root@laptop /root]# up2date --whatprovides bash
[root@laptop /root]# up2date --whatprovides dcopserver

up2date.CommunicationError: Error communicating with server. The message was:

Could not solve dependency dcopserver
This is an issue with the beta server and not with up2date itself. I am able to
run 'up2date --whatprovides dcopserver' against the internal test machines
(which have the same code base as the live servers) and get back a null list.
so what are we supposed to file against with up2date server problems?
FWIW, Adrian wanted me to create this bugzilla entry, although I'm not sure why
