Changing group description

Issue #279 resolved
created an issue


when I try to adapt the repository group description the change leads to an error which complains about existing directory:

//2011-10-17 19:17:50.533 ERROR [rhodecode.controllers.admin.repos_groups] Traceback (most recent call last): File "/usr/local/lib/python2.7/dist-packages/RhodeCode-1.2.1-py2.7.egg/rhodecode/controllers/admin/", line 129, in update repos_group_model.update(id, form_result) File "/usr/local/lib/python2.7/dist-packages/RhodeCode-1.2.1-py2.7.egg/rhodecode/model/", line 156, in update new_parent_id=form_data['group_parent_id']) File "/usr/local/lib/python2.7/dist-packages/RhodeCode-1.2.1-py2.7.egg/rhodecode/model/", line 104, in __rename_group 'existing dir %s' % new_path) Exception: Was trying to rename to already existing dir /daten/hg/all/egl/artsystem//

So adjusting the description is not allowed right now.

    Updating to 1.2.2 makes it even more worse.

    Now no renaming of the repository group is possible.

    Error Message:

        with open(src, 'rb') as fsrc:
    IOError: [Errno 2] No such file or directory: u'/daten/hg/all/ea_libs'

    This message is true. The directory /daten/hg/all/ea_libs does not exists in this hierarchy. But the script should look in this folder: /daten/hg/all/ea/ea_libs. The parent repository group is missing.

  2. semmelb reporter


    • Repository groups created in 1.2.1
    • 2 Repository groups ( ea, ea_libs )
    • one repository parent of the other ( for me ea parent of ea_libs )

    Step by step example:

    1. Login as admin
    2. Admin -> Repository groups
    3. Select repository subgroup ( for me ea >> ea_libs )
    4. Rename Group name ( for me ea_libs to libs )
    5. Save

    Creating the repository groups with the Rhodecode version 1.2.2. does not shows this issue! Everything went smoothly then.

    So report could be closed if the conversion is unimportant.
