Hello:

I posted this to Kickstart and Devel lists. No response yet. Would
anyone here have any idea?

I am trying to add a repository to an existing KS file. This is the script [2].

The script is doing its job for KS files which do not have a
'--default' switch added to the %packages section. However, for a KS
file which has a %packages --default section added, the parser does
not read beyond it and hence creates a KS file which do not have any
of the following packages specified in the KS file.

To quickly verify the problem, I have added two KS files (basically
the fedora-install-fedora.ks used to create Fedora installation DVDs)
with one having the --default option, and the other not having it. I
have commented out the actual repo addition code so that the problem
can be reproduced easily.

For example, with the default.ks file:

$python ks_addrepo.py

#version=DEVEL
repo --name="fedora"
--mirrorlist=http://mirrors.fedoraproject.org/mirrorlist?repo=fedora-$releasever&arch=$basearch
--excludepkgs=
"kernel*debug*,kernel-kdump*,syslog-ng*,java-1.5.0-gcj-devel,astronomy-bookmarks,generic*,java-1.5.0-gcj-javadoc,btanks*,GConf2-dbus*,bluez-gnome"
repo --name="fedora-source"
--mirrorlist=http://mirrors.fedoraproject.org/mirrorlist?repo=fedora-source-$releasever&arch=$basearch
--excludepkgs=
"kernel*debug*,kernel-kdump*,syslog-ng*,java-1.5.0-gcj-devel,astronomy-bookmarks,generic*,java-1.5.0-gcj-javadoc,btanks*,GConf2-dbus*,bluez-gnome"
# Installation logging level
logging --level=info


%packages --default

%end

And with the nodefault.ks file:

$python ks_addrepo.py

#version=DEVEL
repo --name="fedora"
--mirrorlist=http://mirrors.fedoraproject.org/mirrorlist?repo=fedora-$releasever&arch=$basearch
--excludepkgs=
"kernel*debug*,kernel-kdump*,syslog-ng*,java-1.5.0-gcj-devel,astronomy-bookmarks,generic*,java-1.5.0-gcj-javadoc,btanks*,GConf2-dbus*,bluez-gnome"
repo --name="fedora-source"
--mirrorlist=http://mirrors.fedoraproject.org/mirrorlist?repo=fedora-source-$releasever&arch=$basearch
--excludepkgs=
"kernel*debug*,kernel-kdump*,syslog-ng*,java-1.5.0-gcj-devel,astronomy-bookmarks,generic*,java-1.5.0-gcj-javadoc,btanks*,GConf2-dbus*,bluez-gnome"
# Installation logging level
logging --level=info

Have I hit a bug or is it something which is known can be worked around?

'ksflatten' behaves similarly. So, looks like its something to do with the parsing.
