Description John Reiser 2008-09-13 17:15:06 EDT
Description of problem: --force on the comand line fails to override the objection that /data/Fedora10/10/i386/os-disc1 already exists

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

How reproducible: always

Steps to Reproduce:
1.pungi -c /usr/share/pungi/rawhide-fedora.ks --force --destdir=/data/Fedora10 --name Fedora --ver 10 --nosource

2.pungi -c /usr/share/pungi/rawhide-fedora.ks --force --destdir=/data/Fedora10 --name Fedora --ver 10 --nosource   # repeat of step 1, without cleaning destination tree

Actual results:
Pungi:ERROR: Directory /data/Fedora10/10/i386/os-disc1 already exists.  Use --force to overwrite.

Expected results:
no complaints, and successful compose.  "--force" was specified as the third argument, just before --destdir=.

This bug appears to have been reported against 'rawhide' during the Fedora 10 development cycle.
Changing version to '10'.

This still applies to rawhide.
Comment 3 Bug Zapper 2009-06-09 05:44:02 EDT

Comment 4 Bug Zapper 2010-04-27 08:14:43 EDT
This message is a reminder that Fedora 11 is nearing its end of life.
Approximately 30 (thirty) days from now Fedora will stop maintaining
and issuing updates for Fedora 11.  It is Fedora's policy to close all
bug reports from releases that are no longer maintained.  At that time
this bug will be closed as WONTFIX if it remains open with a Fedora 
'version' of '11'.

Package Maintainer: If you wish for this bug to remain open because you
plan to fix it in a currently maintained version, simply change the 'version' 
to a later Fedora version prior to Fedora 11's end of life.

Bug Reporter: Thank you for reporting this issue and we are sorry that 
we may not be able to fix it before Fedora 11 is end of life.  If you 
would still like to see this bug fixed and are able to reproduce it 
against a later version of Fedora please change the 'version' of this 
bug to the applicable version.  If you are unable to change the version, 
please add a comment here and someone will do it for you.

Although we aim to fix as many bugs as possible during every release's 
lifetime, sometimes those efforts are overtaken by events.  Often a 
more recent Fedora release includes newer upstream software that fixes 
bugs or makes them obsolete.

The process we are following is described here:
Comment 5 Jesse Keating 2010-05-25 17:57:40 EDT
We finally fixed this upstream, it'll be in the next release of pungi.
