Comment 1 Pavel Raiskup 2016-07-12 10:58:18 UTC
Probably src/createrepo_shared.c:
- tmp_repodata_dir = tmp;
+ tmp_repodata_dir = g_strdup(tmp);

Comment 2 Tomas Mlcoch 2016-08-26 09:30:40 UTC
Should be resolved in this commit:

Comment 4 Fedora End Of Life 2016-11-25 09:25:33 UTC
This message is a reminder that Fedora 23 is nearing its end of life.
Approximately 4 (four) weeks from now Fedora will stop maintaining
and issuing updates for Fedora 23. It is Fedora's policy to close all
bug reports from releases that are no longer maintained. At that time
this bug will be closed as EOL if it remains open with a Fedora  'version'
of '23'.

Package Maintainer: If you wish for this bug to remain open because you
plan to fix it in a currently maintained version, simply change the 'version' 
to a later Fedora version.

Thank you for reporting this issue and we are sorry that we were not 
able to fix it before Fedora 23 is end of life. If you would still like 
to see this bug fixed and are able to reproduce it against a later version 
of Fedora, you are encouraged  change the 'version' to a later Fedora 
version prior this bug is closed as described in the policy above.

Although we aim to fix as many bugs as possible during every release's 
lifetime, sometimes those efforts are overtaken by events. Often a 
more recent Fedora release includes newer upstream software that fixes 
bugs or makes them obsolete.

Comment 5 Pavel Raiskup 2017-01-23 17:38:13 UTC
Can we please backport to F25?  Thanks.

Comment 6 Pavel Raiskup 2017-01-24 05:34:30 UTC
Proposing fix in private branch: private-praiskup-rhbz-1355720

Tomas, I'm OK to merge this f25+ and submit update if you gave me an ACK.

Comment 7 Pavel Raiskup 2017-02-10 11:26:25 UTC
No ACK so far; fixing F25 is not on my radar now (both copr instances
have it fixed), but I'll push to F26 very soon to avoid the same issue
again in future copr updates.

Please stop me now if you think this is a bad idea.

Comment 8 Tomas Mlcoch 2017-02-13 08:47:17 UTC
Looks good Pavel.

Comment 9 Pavel Raiskup 2017-02-13 09:11:21 UTC
Would you be OK if I submitted EPEL7 update, too?  There is initiative to
make Copr work on el7 machines so it would be nice to have it fixed now
when we are on it.

Comment 10 Tomas Mlcoch 2017-02-13 09:22:46 UTC
Ack. Feel free to update EPEL7 too.
