Description Frank Murphy 2010-05-22 08:54:00 EDT
Description of problem: preupgrade(cli) rawhide 

Version-Release number of selected component (if applicable):
All i686\x86_64


How reproducible: Always since F13-branched

RFE:

Remove "Rawhide" from releases.txt

as it is no longer directly installable:


"The rawhide tree is no longer directly installable.  You have to install a previous release, then enable the rawhide repository and yum update to it."

from an email reply.

Plus all attempts to run preupgrade\cli Rawhide end in failure.

The attached patch will adjust the releases.txt file included in preupgrade.  However, I think Fedora infrastructure TRAC ticket#2216 (https://fedorahosted.org/fedora-infrastructure/ticket/2216) will be needed to track updating the official http://mirrors.fedoraproject.org/releases.txt file so that it no longer offers 'Rawhide'.

Does anything else use releases.txt?

PackageKit, but it uses the one shipped in preupgrade.

Richard.

Ah okay.  So I don't know if releases.txt is intended to track "Installable" releases, or just repositories.  I think the former?

How would PackageKit be impacted by removing the 'Rawhide' stanza from releases.txt?

Correct.

Not at all -- the GUI doesn't show unstable releases.
Comment 5 Frank Murphy 2010-06-11 03:16:03 EDT
Removing it from http://mirrors.fedoraproject.org/releases.txt

has now adjusted the behaviour of the GUI, so that even if  "Display unstable" is check Rawhide will not show up.

:)

Hi Frank, I can't tell from your comment if this was a question or not.  But to confirm your findings, the intent of removing 'Rawhide' from http://mirrors.fedoraproject.org/releases.txt is so that it will *not* display as an option in preupgrade.  Rawhide install images are no longer provided

When Fedora 14 is Branched from rawhide, releases.txt will be updated to offer preupgrade -> Fedora 14 (Branched).

Has been fixed.
