Last modified: 2008-07-24 15:07:24 EDT
Description of problem:
There is new subpackage of systemtap: systemtap-testsuite
We need to update comps to get it in composes.
systemtap-testsuite has been added to ppc64-compat-arch-development group
file list from compose 0701.0:

please clarify. ppc64 or ppc, x86 and ia64 arches? The list below shows other
arches except ppc.
> file list from compose 0701.0:
Alex, we didn't ship ppc systemtap due to kernel restrictions and we don't ship
it in rhel-4.7 as well.
I think this list only shows that everything is all right, because
systemtap-runtime is in all trees.

please elaborate more on that. Does that mean that systemtap-* was added to ppc
only or it was added to all arches? What is the expected result, systemtap-*
present in all arches? Which groups in comps?

as I wrote earlier, systemtap-testsuite has been added to
ppc64-compat-arch-development group, which means it has been added to ppc only.
I got report from a quality engineer, that there's something wrong with errata
file listings and there's systemtap-testsuite missing.
So I filed this bug and started to investigate what happened.
It seems that only ppc change was needed, because systemtap-testsuite is pulled
to other trees by another compose mechanism - NPLB (No Package Left Behind).
If you still need more info, we should pull developer (Frank Eigler
<firstname.lastname@example.org>) to this discussion.
systemtap-testsuite is present in the following group:
<name>ppc64 Compatibility Arch Development Support</name>
Since it's not default and not visible it's not possible to select this group
from the UI in anaconda.
please clarify is this the desired behavior? Should this group be
visible+selectable in the UI. Was the addition to comps only needed to pull
systemtap-testsuite in the compose or it was intended that the end user will be
able to select the package manually for installation.
I updated the same group, which already contained other systemtap packages to
pull systemtap-testsuite into composes.
There was no explicit request to make these packages visible in anaconda.
