Description David Kutálek 2010-06-24 05:41:32 EDT
Description of problem:

This is new behaviour in report-0.16-1.el6.
After reporting (sending) the file chosen, report deletes it locally.
1) it is not expected and preferred behaviour imho
2) This change/behaviour is not documented in changelog/man page.
Therefore, this is a buggy behaviour or documentation bug.

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

report-0.16-1.el6

How reproducible:

Always with localsave, other plugins not tested yet.

Steps to Reproduce:
1. see shell log above
  
Actual results:

Local file is deleted.

Expected results:

Local file is not deleted (as used to be before) or this behaviour is documented. I would recommend not deleting reported file.
