Comment 1 seth vidal 2010-06-30 17:24:46 EDT
trace is comingout of rhn plugin. reassinging
Comment 2 Miroslav Suchý 2010-07-01 10:02:02 EDT
It state: connection reset by peer.
Which happens due network problems. We could not really fix that :)
But pirut should catch this exception and provide nice window to user with Retry/Cancel option. 
Reassigning to pirut.
Lowering severity.
Comment 3 Miroslav Suchý 2010-07-01 11:12:56 EDT
BTW BZ 595837 is related where I recently catch this TB for yum and print nice error message. But this will not probably help pirut as it has to catch it on its own.
Comment 4 James Antill 2013-03-14 15:20:15 EDT
This request was evaluated by Red Hat Engineering for inclusion in a Red 
Hat Enterprise Linux maintenance release.

Red Hat does not currently plan to provide this change in a Red Hat 
Enterprise Linux update release for currently deployed products.

With the goal of minimizing risk of change for deployed systems, and in 
response to customer and partner requirements, Red Hat takes a 
conservative approach when evaluating enhancements for inclusion in 
maintenance updates for currently deployed products. The primary 
objectives of update releases are to enable new hardware platform 
support and to resolve critical defects.
