Description of problem:
When using make tag in checked out cvs repository which is contained under git repository (lower in the tree, not related to cvs) rhts-mk-get-test-package-name returns wrong package name.

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

How reproducible:

Steps to Reproduce:
1. cd
2. git clone <repo> .
3. mkdir cvs_repos; cd cvs_repos
3. checkout CVS repository; cd to repository
4. /usr/libexec/rhts/rhts-mk-get-test-package-name
Actual results:

Would be nice to have this fixed not to confuse another user.

Would this be solved by changing the order in rhts-mk-get-current-tag ?

Put git in the beginning and then cvs and svn after?

Comment 2 Marian Csontos 2011-08-30 18:39:06 UTC
I am sceptical it is possible to solve that way as other people will complain it's broken if we just change the order.

Shall we try to obtain tag from all possible sources, find maximum and increase by one? Not very nice solution but IMO the only good one.

Shall we also tag in all supported VCS`s if present?

Alternatively it should be possible to pick (and remember) preferred VCS.

Bulk reassignment of issues as Bill has moved to another team.

Comment 4 Dan Callaghan 2012-10-24 03:34:26 UTC
I don't think this is much of an issue anymore since nobody is using CVS for their tests...
