Weird stickiness of "suggest reboot" flag
|Reported by:||kkofler||Owned by:|
The "suggest reboot" flag for a package appears to be "sticky" in some way: I have observed that if an update to a package XYZ had that flag set, any future update to that same package XYZ will get it set automatically. And even if I try unchecking it, Bodhi will still keep it set. This is particularly annoying for update groups like KDE, where an update of just, say, kdenetwork (or even some small application which just happened to require upgrading together with KDE once for whatever reason) doesn't really require a restart. Nor updates which just add a patch. Whereas running a mix of KDE 4.2 and 4.3 tends to be unstable, so we do have to recommend to restart at least X11 (but Bodhi / the metadata / PackageKit have no way of marking a restart of only the session as recommended) for that kind of updates.
