The --ignoremeta option should also skip config validation
Last modified: 2012-03-20 02:18:50 EDT
Currently, even with --ignoremeta set, the management CLI can't manipulate (e.g. delete) server directories with invalid metadata. Config validation should be skipped completely in this case.
It turns out the CLI actually behaves this way *by default*, because it doesn't retrieve the importer configurations by default - instead, it leaves them out when loading the list of repos, meaning they can't cause validation to fail.
