Description Tim Flink 2012-05-11 13:46:19 UTC
After deliberately causing a failure in anaconda, reporting the first issue in partner-bugzilla works fine but causing the same failure a second time fails. The following log information is shown:

--- Running report_Bugzilla ---
Logging into Bugzilla at https://partner-bugzilla.redhat.com/
Checking for duplicates
fatal: (null)
(exited with 1)

At the time of this report, the partner-bugzilla duplicate is https://partner-bugzilla.redhat.com/show_bug.cgi?id=819676

If I report the same traceback multiple times to bugzilla.redhat.com, the log output on screen looks like:

--- Running report_Bugzilla ---
Logging into Bugzilla at https://bugzilla.redhat.com
Checking for duplicates
Bug is already reported: 820975
Logging out
Status: NEW https://bugzilla.redhat.com/show_bug.cgi?id=820975

My testing thus far has been with F17 final TC4. The exact procedure that I've been using to cause a failure in anaconda is as follows:
 1. boot DVD iso with the extra param:
 2. proceed with installation until the timezone selection screen where a 
   traceback will happen
 3. Save the traceback to either bugzilla.redhat.com or

Created attachment 583856 [details]
output from reporter-bugzilla -vvvd

I ran reporter-bugzilla -vvvd -c /etc/libreport/plugins/bugzilla.conf -d <crash_dir> after hitting the exception.

Attached the results of that command.

Comment 2 Tim Flink 2012-05-12 14:55:28 UTC
Proposing as a release blocker for F17 final due to violation of the following alpha release criterion [1]:

The installer must be able to report failures to Bugzilla and local disk, with appropriate information included.

This can't be fixed post release and the inability for the installer to report failures with any duplicates is a significant handicap.

Comment 3 Tim Flink 2012-05-12 15:01:33 UTC
Note that bugzilla.redhat.com is schedule to be upgraded before the release of F17 - hence the blocker proposal.

    rhbz#820985 - bz 4.2 doesn't have 'bug_id' member; it's 'id'
    Signed-off-by: Nikola Pajkovsky <npajkovs@redhat.com>

Comment 5 Adam Williamson 2012-05-14 15:37:32 UTC
We would also want the next patch:


"bugzilla: query bz version and for 4.2 use 'id' element for getting bug number, for others use 'bug_id'"
