the software.channel.cloneErrata doesn't actually add packages to the channels
when they are cloned.
fixed in rev 135809.
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.
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.
Create a custom channel for RHEL 4 i386. Clone a kernel errata into the channel.
Only the "kernel" package from the errata should be published to the channel.
Kernel-smp (or any other package) should not.
