Red Hat Bugzilla – Bug 455490
Enhance rawhide name to clearly state it is development repo
Last modified: 2013-01-09 20:51:02 EST
Description of problem:
With new package-kit tool for selecting repos more and more people installing
Fedora just blindly enables most of repos in selection to get most of the
software available. Among them they also enable Rawhide, as the name of the repo
is only "Fedora - Rawhide". This leads usually to disaster as they update to
rawhide or at best they complain they have failing yum update.
Version-Release number of selected component (if applicable):
Fedora - Rahide
At least use
Fedora - Rawhide - Development Tree
as Livna does.
Best would be to have a description of the repo available in yum repo files,
that could be displayed for each repo.
name=Fedora - Rawhide - Developmental packages for the next Fedora release
that's the new setting in rawhide's fedora-release.
