Comment 1 James Antill 2008-04-18 13:21:14 EDT
 We can't just catch RepoError ... so the only thing that comes to mind is to do
a whitelist of valid tags, which sucks (although that would give us a nice way
to list all valid tags).
 I guess we could start throwing something specific, for just this error. Meh.
Comment 2 James Antill 2008-04-18 13:22:02 EDT
 Nevermind ... we apparently already have a whitelist ... so easy fix.
Comment 3 Seth Vidal 2008-04-18 15:17:29 EDT
the problem is YumInstalledPackages raised a different exception than
YumAvailablePackages b/c of a global sqlite exception catch. I've made a fix for
this and now repoquery acts correctly. next release of yum will fix this.
