Description Randy Barlow 2012-12-13 22:11:31 UTC
We have an unfortunate bug[0] wherein we don't give the user an informative error message if they initiate a sync with an SSL feed without providing the CA certificate for the feed.

We aren't going to fix [0] before the release of Pulp 2.0, so we should document this behavior. I recommend a "Known Issues" section where we can link to this and perhaps other bugs. I also recommend that we put a "TIP" or "NOTE" or "CAUTION" block near any places in the docs where we talk about creating repos or syncing them. We can link to the bug in those blocks too.

We should write about this in the quick start guide as well.

Comment 3 Randy Barlow 2014-03-17 21:58:58 UTC
I'm going to set this to the 2.4.0 release so that it can be in line to get verified.
