patch to not fail if a bug doesn't have some optional attributes
Description of problem:
The latest bugzilla install at Red Hat apparently doesn't always return a cc list in the xmlrpc response for a full query of a bug, resulting in a traceback and exit.
Version-Release number of selected component (if applicable):
Steps to Reproduce:
1.find a bug with no cc list item in bugzilla
2.bugzilla --user=X --pass=Y query -f --bug_id=<bz number from 1>
successful dump of bug
I've attached a patch below which fixes the issue
As is my tradition, I'm using this bug to test the problem - hence my removing
myself from the CC list.
Anyone else reading this: Kindly do not add yourself to the CC list of this
bug, so it will stay empty.
Probably the best solution here is to fix up the Bug object so bug.cc is always guaranteed to exist, even if it's an empty list. I'll have a patch that does this.. soonish.
P.S.: I'm sure you know this, but just for the record: "except: pass" is a great temporary workaround for the problem, but in general OH MAN NEVER DO THAT.
