[abrt] install_grouplist:UnicodeDecodeError during 'dnf group install'
Last modified: 2013-08-16 19:05:54 EDT
Description of problem:
dnf group install crashes when used to install group which name was translated and non-ascii characters were used.
For example installing "Pracovní plochy KDE Plasma" (czech translation for KDE group).
Version-Release number of selected component:
cmdline: /usr/bin/python /bin/dnf group install 'Pracovn\xc3\xad' plochy KDE Plasma
cli.py:894:install_grouplist:UnicodeDecodeError: 'ascii' codec can't decode byte 0xc3 in position 7: ordinal not in range(128)

Sorry but as I am looking at it, quotation marks must be used, so I am closing this bug as it really isn't a bug.
