Description wes hayutin 2008-08-08 03:38:14 UTC
Description of problem:

This is kind of annoying...  checking the md5 sum for a large directory can take a very long time, and a user will certainly not watch for a user name prompt...

and the following will happen... 

[root@rlx-3-18 Fedora9]# rhnpush --channel=fedora9 --server=https://localhost/APP --dir=/Fedora9/ -vvv
Uploading files from directory /Fedora9/
Connecting to https://localhost/APP
url is https://localhost/PACKAGE-PUSH
Result codes: 200 OK
Computing md5sum and package Info .This may take sometime ...

** 10 minutes later ** 

Red Hat Network username: Red Hat Network username: admin
Red Hat Network password: 

ERROR: unhandled exception occurred: (Timeout Exception).

times out .. have to start over.. boo
