Red Hat Bugzilla – Bug 443035
modifyrepo changes overwritten by createrepo --update
Last modified: 2013-03-14 15:58:01 EDT
Description of problem:
When I add some file to the repos repodata and then calls `createrepo --
update`, repomd.xml is overwritten and do not contain file added by modifrepo.
Version-Release number of selected component (if applicable):
Steps to Reproduce:
1. # modifyrepo my_file.txt $REPO_DIR/repodata
2. # createrepo --database --update $REPO_DIR
3. # grep my_file.txt $REPO_DIR/repodata/repomd.xml
my_file.txt is not listed in the $REPO_DIR/repodata/repomd.xml
my_file.txt is listed in the $REPO_DIR/repodata/repomd.xml
I'm not sure if this is a bug, or if this is an expected behaviour.
Just found this old bug that wasn't tagged properly and therefore lost.
This request was evaluated by Red Hat Product Management for
inclusion in the current release of Red Hat Enterprise Linux.
Because the affected component is not scheduled to be updated in the
current release, Red Hat is unfortunately unable to address this
request at this time. Red Hat invites you to ask your support
representative to propose this request, if appropriate and relevant,
in the next release of Red Hat Enterprise Linux.
This request was evaluated by Red Hat Engineering for inclusion in a Red
Hat Enterprise Linux maintenance release.
Red Hat does not currently plan to provide this change in a Red Hat
Enterprise Linux update release for currently deployed products.
With the goal of minimizing risk of change for deployed systems, and in
response to customer and partner requirements, Red Hat takes a
conservative approach when evaluating enhancements for inclusion in
maintenance updates for currently deployed products. The primary
objectives of update releases are to enable new hardware platform
support and to resolve critical defects.
