Description Bradley 2011-01-10 04:00:48 UTC
Created attachment 472495 [details]

Description of problem:

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


How reproducible:


Steps to Reproduce:
1. Create a file /etc/mash/test.mash:



2. Run:

mash -o /tmp/tagb

Actual results:

ERROR: No configuration named 'tagb'!

Expected results:

configuration is found

Additional info:

This is because the MashDistroConfig is only set up per file, not per section, so any attributes set on the first section also apply to subsequent sections.

the mash config has:

                if not thisdistro.name:
                    thisdistro.name = sect

so they all end up with the name of the first section. Setting the |name| attribute is not a workaround; all that happens in the *last* section's name then gets used because the same thisdistro object is appended multiple times to config.distros.

Same bug is in the epel5 mash version
