Description

If I use a Deps file that looks like this:

<Dependencies priority="0">
        <Group name="debian-etch">
                <!-- Testing -->
                <Package name="bcfg2">
                        <Package name="debsums"/>
                        <Package name="python"/>
                        <Package name="python-apt"/>
                        <Package name="python-central"/>
                        <Package name="python-lxml"/>
                        <Package name="ucf"/>
                </Package>
        </Group>
</Dependencies>

I can run bcfg2 -v -d -e and get a successful run. However, if I move the XML comment down one level so the Deps file looks like this:

<Dependencies priority="0">
        <Group name="debian-etch">
                <Package name="bcfg2">
                        <!-- Testing -->
                        <Package name="debsums"/>
                        <Package name="python"/>
                        <Package name="python-apt"/>
                        <Package name="python-central"/>
                        <Package name="python-lxml"/>
                        <Package name="ucf"/>
                </Package>
        </Group>
</Dependencies>

The client outputs an error message like this:

GetProbes completed successfully
Operation GetConfig completed with fault
Failed to download configuration from bcfg2

and the server log (syslog) contains this message:

Client 192.168.2.34 called function GetConfig with wrong argument
count Traceback (most recent call last): File
"/usr/lib/python2.4/site-packages/Bcfg2/Server/Component.py", line

"apihelpers.pxi", line 554, in etree._getNsTag File "apihelpers.pxi",
line 502, in etree._utf8 TypeError: Argument must be string or
unicode.

I guess I expected the XML comments to be ignored by bcfg2 and to have no effect on the operation of the server.

I am running on Debian etch using a self-build bcfg2 server and client based on the 0.9.3 release tag from SVN.
