Subtle change in default behaviour or did I miss something in the docs?
It's been a while since I played with the koji buildsystem so since
I've a spare box in the backroom doing nothing and I'm between
projects, I thought I'd have a shot at getting a standalone system up
and running using a clean minimal fc13 image.

* koji-1.4.0-2.fc13.noarch

* postgresql-8.4.4-1.fc13.x86_64

* httpd-2.2.16-1.fc13.x86_64

* mock-1.1.3-1.fc13.noarch

I've a fairly large chain of scripts that automatically sets up the
initial system, ie the users, the postgresql schema's (and upgrades),
the ssl configs, certificate files, the config file changes, firewall
changes, preloading the repo's and other tweaks so that I can easily
trash the system and rebuild it from scratch without getting mired in
the lengthy set-up procedure and that has worked fine for fc11/fc12

In fc13, when koji starts creating the FS structures for the chroot
under /var/lib/mock, it will attempt to create a
/var/cache/mock/<tag-X-Y>/filesystems file which it can't do
since /var/cache/mock/<tag-X-Y> was never created. The cheap way
out of that is to set config_opts['cache_topdir'] = '/var/lib/mock'
instead of /var/cache/mock. That option didn't need fiddling with in
fc12 so I'm unsure if this was a change in koji's code base or
something unrelated.

The following is the product of being unable to email a notification
because it can't connect to the mail host... I can think of dozens of
reasons why this could occur but it may be better to stick in an
exception to queue them up internally for retry or at least spit out
'Hey! I can't talk to your mailhost!" and fail the BuildNotify task

Traceback (most recent call last):

File "/usr/sbin/kojid", line 1513, in run

return socket.create_connection((port, host), timeout)

The main problem I keep hitting, is mainly with noarch packages.

** BuildError: error building package (arch noarch), mock exited
with status 1; see build.log for more information

however when I go to look all I see in the log is the single line

* Mock Version: 1.1.3

The root.log doesn't show anything interesting either

however if I manually poke the rpm through with mock, it works.


* [root@whitebishop ~]# mock -r
koji/el5-ga-build-9-44 --rebuild ~/buildsys-macros-5-2.ovs.src.rpm

* [root@whitebishop ~]# ls -l* /var/lib/mock/el5-ga-build-9-44/result

* total 48

* LEAVE do -->

I can't reason out why there would be any difference unless it's
passing --arch noarch.. in which case

* [root@whitebishop ~]# mock -r koji/el5-ga-build-9-44 --arch
noarch --rebuild ~/buildsys-macros-5-2.ovs.src.rpm

* ERROR: Cannot build target noarch on arch x86_64

But then I'd expect to have the error line in the build.log which I
don't... so I'm a bit flummoxed if this is what has happened or not.
