Description Duncan Sinclair 2016-07-13 11:02:20 UTC
Description of problem:
Running spacewalk-repo-sync without a "-c" channel option causes it to fail.

Version-Release number of selected component (if applicable):
Python 2.7.5
CentOS 7

How reproducible:
Every time

Steps to Reproduce:
1. Create a spacewalk-repo-sync config file
2. Run "spacewalk-repo-sync -g spacewalk-repo-sync.config
3. Don't add any "-c channel" argument

Actual results:
Traceback (most recent call last):
  File "/usr/bin/spacewalk-repo-sync", line 219, in <module>
    sys.exit(abs(main() or 0))
  File "/usr/bin/spacewalk-repo-sync", line 161, in main
    if len(options.channel_label)>0:
TypeError: object of type 'NoneType' has no len()

Expected results:
Syncing all the channels specified in the config file.

Additional info:
This bug seems to be the result of the recent enhancement to spacewalk-repo-sync to allow it to accept multiple "-c" arguments.

Sorry, must have missed that commit when I was looking yesterday.

Feel free to close this bug.

Can I suggest a 2.5.1 release to stop more people stumbling over this?

Comment 3 Lukáš Hellebrandt 2016-11-15 13:26:55 UTC
Verified with SW nightly from 2016-11-14.

Used reproducer from OP:

# cat srs.conf
# spacewalk-repo-sync -g srs.conf
# echo $?

This looks like it was fixed in previous release, but I'm closing it in this one.

Spacewalk 2.7 has been released.
