Description Raymond Jennings 2010-11-08 14:13:10 UTC
I ran repoman against my current copy of the portage tree, and it caused python to dump stack.

I really don't know what's going on here but I really don't think that choking with a stack trace is an acceptable response to whatever was wrong with the portage tree when I checked it.

Reproducible: Sometimes

Steps to Reproduce:
1.  cd /usr/portage
2.  repoman scan

Actual Results:  
It generated a python traceback.

Expected Results:  
I don't know, depends on what made repoman choke.

Since the portage tree is inherently volatile, I've included a copy of timestamp.chk

Really stumped on this one.

This should be fixed in 2.1.9 (which uses ElementTree instead of minidom).
