#39 closed enhancement (fixed)

distribution naming

Reported by: bryang Owned by: bruno
Priority: minor Milestone: 0.9.8
Component: pb Version: 0.9.6
Keywords: Cc:


Perhaps you can make PB more input-tolerant by accepting any upper/lower case version of the distribution names, but then working internally and generating standard lower case versions. I'd also strongly suggest that you consider using what lsb_release returns for the expected name.

I think that now that distro names are external, I don't need to make pb case sensitive. it's left to the admin to precise the distribution names the way he wants, and it will be followed by pb. Please report any problem linked to that.

Concerning LSB, same stuff. We could even write a tool to generate partly the conf file from lsb_release if really needed. But that can now be at least manually maintained.
