Packages plugin doesn't check dependencies properly when multiple sources have the same package

Reported by: strauss Owned by: desai
Priority: critical Milestone: Bcfg2 1.0.0 Release
Component: bcfg2-client Version: 1.0
Keywords: Cc:

Description

When multiple sources have the same package available, Packages.py does not appear to pick the source with the latest package to perform dependency calculation.

In my case, Packages.py is calculating the dependencies for bzr based on EPEL's old package, not the up-to-date bzr package in our own Yum repository. BCFG2 is properly loading metadata from both.

Perhaps Packages.py should support priority="N" to fix this issue and even allow use of the latest package version for the highest-priority source with the package.
