Description Nick Strugnell 2002-11-06 16:11:38 UTC
From Bugzilla Helper:
User-Agent: Mozilla/5.0 (X11; U; Linux i686; en-US; rv:1.0.1) Gecko/20021003

Description of problem:
If the package name is longer than 40 characters it will be run into the channel
name using the above command. This makes it impossible to parse out which
packages are in which channels when scripting.

Version-Release number of selected component (if applicable):

How reproducible:

Steps to Reproduce:
1.up2date --show-channels --showall | grep XFree86-ISO8859-15-100dpi

Actual Results:  Got the result:


i.e. no space between package and channel names

Expected Results:  Should have got:

XFree86-ISO8859-15-100dpi-fonts-4.2.0-72 redhat-linux-i386-8.0

i.e. some whitespace between the package and channel names

Additional info:

This needs to be fixed for work at Nokia.

Comment 1 Adrian Likins 2003-01-15 06:06:50 UTC
output isn't really designed to be used for scripting, it's
a info display.

What exactly is it nokia wants to do with this?

Comment 2 Nick Strugnell 2003-01-16 08:55:23 UTC
Needed for a custom channel/package browser.
