Red Hat Bugzilla – Bug 494338
Remove the global state variables
Last modified: 2016-09-19 22:05:18 EDT
Description of problem:
Move all the global state information to the journal. Global variables are teh debil, as rousseau said. What really sux, is that the current code won't probably survice the reboot. It also complicates stuff when it comes to possible use from non-bash.
I found global state in these areas:
maybe there are more. I just grepped __INTERNAL in hope everyone use this. I kinda suspect virtualX, but I haven't looked in it, because I'm afraid - it tried to eat my cursor last time I dared to open that file :)
This bug appears to have been reported against 'rawhide' during the Fedora 19 development cycle.
Changing version to '19'.
(As we did not run this process for some time, it could affect also pre-Fedora 19 development
cycle bugs. We are very sorry. It will help us with cleanup during Fedora 19 End Of Life. Thank you.)
More information and reason for this action is here:
New journal work includes a storage mechanism (file-based key-value put/get) and rlFile and rlService function groups were migrated to use it, so we do not use any global variables other than constants anymore.
