As it turns out, after updating to the latest ensemble (0.5+bzr275-0ensemble1~natty1), I am no longer able to deploy any formulas.


summary: - cannot deploy mysql
+ cannot deploy any formulas

mark pointed out problem.. ensemble scans the entire repo looking for the named formula. if one of the formulas is invalid.. it will hose the deploy.

Changed in ensemble:
importance: Undecided → High

We'll have to print a nice error message there indeed, to let the user know what's broken.

In the future the repo work will also address this in "ensemble publish", which will validate the formula
before uploading.

This turned out to be true. I had a formula with a bad metadata.yaml file. Once I removed that folder, everything went back to normal.

Although I am happy that my particular issue is gone for now, this is pretty horrible.
