rpmng and epoch display/handling

Reported by: [email protected] Owned by: desai
Priority: major Milestone:
Component: bcfg2-client Version:
Keywords: Cc:


The EVR display during bcfg2's operation has an asterisk ('*') when there is no epoch present. The typical convention is to not display the epoch if it is None, sometimes even if it is 0.

Furthermore rpm does set noepoch=zeroepoch since several years now. The old noepoch < zeroepoch bug is from the promoteepoch ages that did quite a lot of adventurous loops when comparing (absent epoch of an installed file is set the same as one to be installed). It is safe and also required to assume that no epoch is the same as zero epoch.
