Red Hat Bugzilla – Bug 851826
String matching in target_content.xml is case sensitive, should be case insensitive
Last modified: 2015-07-13 00:35:17 EDT
Description of problem:
String matching in target_content.xml is case sensitive at present.
For example "Fedora" will match, but "fedora" won't.
This is non-obvious, and makes things harder than they need to be.
Ian mentioned in IRC chat the TDL will likely need updating as
well, as it specifies case sensitivity.
Version-Release number of selected component (if applicable):
Almost every element of TDL and of the target_content.xml file is case sensitive. This includes the XML tags, RPM names, the directory components of yum repos.
Is there a particular reason why we think people will have difficulty using the correct case for OS names? Can we address this in documentation and error reporting rather than adding a single case-insensitive exception for OS name?
Closing as ancient and unlikely to be worked on.
