Red Hat Bugzilla – Bug 461723
reposync is non functional
Last modified: 2014-01-21 01:11:05 EST
Description of problem:
The upgrade to yum-utils-1.1.15 has broken reposync.
Version-Release number of selected component (if applicable):
Steps to Reproduce:
1. reposync -n -r updates-newkey
# reposync -n -r updates-newkey
File "/usr/bin/reposync", line 271
SyntaxError: invalid syntax
This bug is new in yum-utils-1.1.15.
yum-utils-1.1.14 appears to work.
it's fixed in yum-utils that should be out in the next couple of days in f8/f9
Bug is still present in yum-utils-1.1.16-1.fc9.noarch.
FWIW: I would have reopened this BZ, now, but this freaking "new bugzilla" doesn't allow me to do so - Pretty hostile against users of this "bugzilla".
what I said was correct 1.1.16-1 is the broken one - the next couple of days you'll see another release for f8/f9 - http://koji/koji/buildinfo?buildID=62512
if you want it now.

And I wanted to reopen this bug, because it currently is not fixed for FC9 and because closing bugs because some "future update might have fixed it" doesn't help anybody.
What if RH's repos go down for another month-long hiatus? Recent history has told me that "closing bugs" without a fixed package actually having been
pushed, is a defective approach.

4 weeks have passed by and reposync is still broken in FC9.
Package maintainer simply doesn't do his job.
1.1.17 is in updates-testing. It fixes this problem. I'm not sure if there's anything keeping this out of updates-released, though.
nope, i have request a push to stable.
Ralf, i pushed it for testing 3 week ago and remember i dont get paid to do this, so stop that BS about i am not doing my job, there is no need for that.

Correct, you pushed a package which was supposed to fix this bug to testing:
This package has never made it to stable => You closed this bug prematurely, because the bug is still present in FC9.
> and remember i dont get paid to do
Neither am I.

Well, I disagree. Fedora lives from mutally sharing benefits from volunteers doing different jobs - What you did (claiming a bug to have been fixed without providing fixed package), doesn't help anybody.
