Description

During Fedora 13, release engineering will provide schedule drops of rawhide for automated testing against rats_install. The provided data will include a compose tree (without packages). For proper automated testing of these images, post-tree-compose will need to monitor a new URL for testing (likely candidate is http://alt.fedoraproject.org/pub/alt/stage/rawhide-testing).

In addition, rats_install will need to support installing with stage2 and the package repo in different locations. That will be tracked in another ticket.

Currently, the stage2 is not supported from command grub line, please see : https://bugzilla.redhat.com/show_bug.cgi?id=609379 , so we may have to put install tree in ks file

Thanks for the link to the bug. This ticket is intended to track updating the current post-tree-compose autoqa watcher to detect the special rawhide acceptance image creation. The rawhide acceptance test runs provide only pxeboot images, a boot.iso and install.img. Packages are not provided.

From the bug you reference, it appears that the stage2 image on physical media takes precedence over any stage2= boot arguments. You are correct that any tests initiated by this watcher script (or other install image watchers) will need to accommodate this. In this case, rats_install test uses the pxeboot images to boot the installer, so stage2= is honored by the installer.
