Remove spacewalk-proxy-tools package
Last modified: 2009-09-17 03:08:26 EDT
The spacewalk-proxy-tools package now only has two things in it (now that rhn-proxy-activate has moved to the installer package): the rhn-proxy init script and rhn-proxy-debug.
rhn-proxy-debug does pretty much exactly the same thing as "sosreport -o rhn" but the sosreport tool is probably somewhat more widely deployed. That just leaves the init script which can probably be moved to the spacewalk-proxy-installer package.
Looking through spacewalk-proxy.spec it seems that spacewalk-proxy-installer is used for upgrades for the RHN product forcing a new config deploy so I thought I'd let someone from RH take a look to ensure we don't break the RHN Proxy product.
I agree that spacewalk-proxy-tools is heading toward removing.
I definitely do not want to move init.d script to spacewalk-proxy-installer, because is fundamental script and have to be installer and web based installer of RHN proxy do not install spacewalk-proxy-installer package. And I want to have this web installer to be functional in RHN Proxy 5.3 (in 5.2 is CLI installer as tech preview, web installer is still prefered, in 5.3 will be prefered CLI and web installer obsolete, but still functional). Becouse of this, it may happen that I leave this open for longer time before resolving.
I will investigate if we can replace rhn-proxy-debug with sosreport.
