Description Justin Sherrill 2008-01-08 15:10:32 EST
the software.channel.cloneErrata doesn't actually add packages to the channels
when they are cloned.
Comment 1 Justin Sherrill 2008-01-17 10:07:36 EST
fixed in rev 135809.
Comment 2 Brandon Perkins 2008-01-30 18:17:51 EST
Fails QA.  My test:

./test_errata.clone_errata.pl --host rhndev5.z900.redhat.com --user bdperkin
--password redhat --channel apiia32channelsoftware1201055234520 --advisoryid 

The errata was cloned as advisory_name = CLA-2008:0026, but there were no
packages in the channel.
Comment 3 Justin Sherrill 2008-01-31 09:36:52 EST

Were there any packages in the channel beforehand?  

I have heard many customer complaints in the past couple of years about errata
cloning methods in satellite pushing packages into channels that weren't in
there before. (when i rewrote the channel management errata add page I fixed

So errata should only be added to the channel if they have a package of the same
name with the same arch already in the channel.

Test Plan:

Create a custom channel for RHEL 4 i386.  Clone a kernel errata into the channel.

Expected results:
  Only the "kernel" package from the errata should be published to the channel.
 Kernel-smp (or any other package) should not.
