Description Dimitar Yordanov 2012-04-16 09:33:08 EDT
Description of problem:

  The type of an Erratum is determined by searching for RHBA, RHEA or RHSA in the "advisory_name" and never check the "advisory_type" where is more likely the type of the errata to be set (at least I do so when creating an erratum via API)

I am proposing the following enhancement:

      if e_epoch < d_epoch:

         EI[e['id']] = e['advisory_synopsis']
         EN[e['id']] = e['advisory_name']

         pattern = re.compile(opt['search'], re.I)
         result = pattern.search(e['advisory_synopsis'])

         if result is not None:
            if type['b'] and ( e['advisory_name'].find("RHBA") == 0 or e['advisory_type'].find("Bug Fix Advisory") == 0 ):

            if type['e'] and ( e['advisory_name'].find("RHEA") == 0 or e['advisory_type'].find("Enhancement Advisory") == 0 ):

            if type['s'] and ( e['advisory_name'].find("RHSA") == 0 or e['advisory_type'].find("Security Advisory") == 0 ) :

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

How reproducible:

Steps to Reproduce:
1. Check the source of the script.
Actual results:
The script obtains the Errata type according "advisory_name".

Expected results:
The script obtains the Errata type according "advisory_type" or "advisory_name".
