Description James Laska 2007-12-13 15:34:28 EST
Description of problem:

Both Fedora/7 and Fedora/8 include the new .treeinfo descriptive file.  The
.treeinfo file is required by SNAKE to properly digest the installation source.
 It points to key files created by the compose (stage#2 images, boot media).  

There appears to be a .treeinfo file provided by the fedora Everything repo,
unfortunately, the file contents do not match the repo.  Additionally, I don't
believe the Fedora Everything repo was intended to be installable (e.g. no boot
media images/*).

Examples ... 


Would it be possible to remove or update the .treeinfo file in the Everything repo

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

Fedora/7 and Fedora/8

Actual results:

# curl
family = Fedora
timestamp = 1193822224.97
variant = 
totaldiscs = 1
version = development
discnum = 1
packagedir = Packages
arch = i386

kernel = images/pxeboot/vmlinuz
initrd = images/pxeboot/initrd.img
boot.iso = images/boot.iso
diskboot.img = images/diskboot.img

kernel = images/xen/vmlinuz
initrd = images/xen/initrd.img

instimage = images/minstg2.img
mainimage = images/stage2.img

Expected results:

# curl
family = Fedora
timestamp = 1193822224.97
variant = Everything 
version = 8
packagedir = Packages
arch = i386

It takes extreme needs to modify a release tree, and in my opinion this doesn't
count.  We can prevent the problem from happening in future trees but I'm not
going to modify the existing trees.
Comment 2 James Laska 2007-12-13 16:29:22 EST
jkeating: sorry, I should have been clearer ... this bug wasn't intended to
address existing trees

This was meant to track whatever fixes would be required to address this for >= F9
Comment 3 John Poelstra 2007-12-13 19:34:13 EST
Reopening to track >= F9
Comment 4 Bug Zapper 2008-05-14 00:11:50 EDT
