Red Hat Bugzilla – Bug 458414
feature request, rhnpush prompt for credentials first before md5sum check
Last modified: 2008-08-08 13:33:20 EDT
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 ...
