Description Bryan Kearney 2010-10-20 20:11:58 UTC
TRUE or FALSE, product certs are found in the etc products directory?

Currently entitlement certs are dropped into a "product" subdirectory of /etc/pki/entitlement during a subscribe binding.  Product certs are statically located in the /etc/pki/products directory.  Should dev change this behaviour and drop the entitlement certs directly into /etc/pki/entitlement?

I spoke to Prad about the use of the /etc/pki/entitlements/"products" directory.  He said they initially thought they would separate the certs for the layered products.  Currently the layered certs are just part of the parent entitlement cert.  Therefore the "product" subdirectory could be removed if we want to reduce the confusion.  Its only purpose currently is to add to the overuse of the term "product".  If it was removed now (which is probably a simple dev change), it impacts docs and tests.  If we want to make this change, I vote to do it earlier (pre-BETA) (possibly ALPHA) rather than later.

Leaving the subdirectory "product" under /etc/pki/entitlement confuses the all of us.

Checked into master (not ALPHA) in 0b54685edd3c33005653a954ef5052b8083a6bea.

Comment 3 John Sefler 2010-10-25 14:19:19 UTC
The consequence of the fix for this bug means that a global search and replace must be done on all documentation (post alpha) switching all occurrences of "/etc/pki/entitlement/product" with "/etc/pki/entitlement".

VERIFIED the code!  No more sub directory called product
TODO: Should also verify the doc...

Comment 6 John Sefler 2010-12-07 19:29:18 UTC
This bugzilla is VERIFIED.
I opened a separate bugzilla https://bugzilla.redhat.com/show_bug.cgi?id=661103 for the changes required to the documentation.
