Description Jay Turner 2008-08-27 08:53:08 EDT
Description of problem:
Bug 447402 resolved the problem where the RHN-related caches weren't getting cleaned as a result of a 'yum clean all'  Appears that the code added into yum-rhn-plugin-0.5.3-6.el5_2.6 is a little too aggressive and tries to handle cleaning for all repositories.  Net result is if a user has plugins enabled and also has local repositories defined, 'yum clean all' will result in:

Repository <blah> is listed more than once in the configuration

Version-Release number of selected component (if applicable):

How reproducible:

Steps to Reproduce:
1. Add local repository definition
2. 'yum list updates'
3. 'yum clean all'
Comment 1 Jay Turner 2008-08-27 08:54:59 EDT
Proposing as a blocker because this issue is a regression with respect to 5.2 (defect was introduced in the 5.2.z stream) and because the defect results in 'yum clean all' failing in the event a local repository is defined and plugins are enabled.
