Description Matthias Clasen 2008-03-18 14:26:23 UTC
When I open the "Edit Repository" dialog for "Additional Fedora Software", and
press OK, 

- it unnecessarily downloads stuff (I didn't make any changes in the dialog)

- I get a warning that says: "Unable to find a group file for
AdditionalFedoraSoftware. This will prevent manual selection of packages from
the repository from working.

Note the missing spaces in AddionalFedoraSoftware. Also, this warning should not
happen at all for a repository which is already in the screen when I first enter

Comment 1 Chris Lumens 2008-03-24 18:46:35 UTC
I've committed some stuff that should help us be a little smarter about
downloading repo metadata.  However, a few things to note:  if you don't want it
to try downloading new metadata, click Cancel instead of OK.  On the other hand,
this stuff should be cached so it shouldn't be pulling down new metadata, only
checking to see if it needs to.  The warning is most likely due to the fact that
this is a test release and not a final release, so we can't get a valid
mirrorlist for it.

Comment 2 Jesse Keating 2008-04-03 19:11:41 UTC
Looks like this just needs a simple re-testing.

Comment 3 Jon Stanley 2008-04-14 16:39:48 UTC
Still downloads new metadata in this instance, and does not attempt to download
comps, resulting in the 'unable to find group file' message. - - [14/Apr/2008:12:32:13 -0400] "GET

Comment 4 Jon Stanley 2008-04-14 16:43:11 UTC
I also really don't think that this is a blocker, since it's a use case that is
basically a mis-use of the UI that causes some undesired results.  Thoughts?

Comment 5 Matthias Clasen 2008-04-14 17:08:04 UTC
Mis-use of the ui ? I don't agree with that. 

But I'm fine with moving htis off the blocker list

Comment 6 Jon Stanley 2008-04-14 18:45:18 UTC
Moving to F10 so we don't forget.

Comment 7 Bug Zapper 2008-05-14 06:40:55 UTC
Changing version to '9' as part of upcoming Fedora 9 GA.
More information and reason for this action is here:

Comment 8 Chris Lumens 2008-08-06 19:04:44 UTC
This is worth a re-test since much more work has gone on in this area yet again for F10.
