Description of problem:
After deleting an rpm package through the web UI, uploading via rhnpush, the rpm
does not display in the channel package list and is not available for installation.
Version-Release number of selected component (if applicable):
Steps to Reproduce:
1.Delete an rpm package from a custom channel
2.Use rhnpush to upload the package deleted in step one
Actual Results: rhnpush finishes successfully - no errors reported.
The rpm package does not display in the package list of the custom channel.
Cannot install package using up2date - up2date reports 'There are no packages
available for update'
Expected Results: Package listed in the channel package list and available for
installation via up2date.
Does this mean that bug 67174 can be closed?
There's no way to delete a package currently - disassociating a package from a
channel does not remove it, so that would explain why the attempt to use rhnpush
a 2nd time failed. If you want to re-associate a package with a channel, you go to:
Channel Management => Edit => Package List Tab
And select 'View packages in' [No Channels] from the pulldown.
You can then re-associate it with the channel.
I could not reproduce it either. bretb, did you use --newest as a flag to
rhnpush, by any chance?
