I can confirm this with F18 Beta RC1 and anaconda 18.29.2. If I change installation repo to http://foo, the package selection gets a warning icon, but I can't just open it and confirm it, I have to change the selection to something else, confirm, open again, and select GNOME back again. Only then the warning disappears.

Not serious enough for Beta, but proposing as Final blocker or at least NTH.

Comment 2 Kamil Páral 2012-11-29 18:31:35 UTC
I should note that http://foo is a correct repository, valid metadata and everything.

Discussed at 2012-11-29 blocker review meeting: http://meetbot.fedoraproject.org/fedora-qa/2012-11-29/f18final-blocker-review-1.1.2012-11-29-17.01.log.txt . Agreed this is not serious enough to be a blocker, but it is accepted as NTH as it may confuse users and cannot be fixed with an update.

Comment 6 Adam Williamson 2012-12-18 00:45:37 UTC
TC3 includes this build, so please re-test with TC3, confirm the fix and up-karma anaconda - thanks!

Comment 7 Adam Williamson 2012-12-18 01:05:04 UTC
Looks good in TC3. After switching source the software selection spoke says 'Source changed - please verify', which explains nicely why it's gone into 'alert' state, and just entering/exiting the spoke is sufficient (no need to pick a different package set and then go back to the one you wanted).
