Bug Description

Description: Ubuntu precise (development branch)
Release: 12.04

  Version table:
 *** 3.0~a24-1ubuntu22 0
        500 precise/main i386 Packages
        100 /var/lib/dpkg/status

Expected Outcome: The example script in auto/config should allow one to build a simple live image.

Actual Outcome: The typo in the example auto/config script causes the build to fail. The typo is: "package-lists" has been mistakenly written as "packages-lists".

The bug seems to have been fixed in a newer version.

The attachment "debdiff of the version in precise and the version in the live-build launchpad trunk" of this bug report has been identified as being a patch in the form of a debdiff. The ubuntu-sponsors team has been subscribed to the bug report so that they can review and hopefully sponsor the debdiff. In the event that this is in fact not a patch you can resolve this situation by removing the tag 'patch' from the bug report and editing the attachment so that it is not flagged as a patch. Additionally, if you are member of the ubuntu-sponsors team please also unsubscribe the team from this bug report.

Hi Rigved, thanks for raising this issue and proposing a patch.

It seems there might have been an issue generating the attached debdiff as it is very large and seems to include things not related to this issue. Please can you confirm it is correct.

In addition, can you confirm where you saw this issue fixed/raised in a newer version..

Yes. The patch includes fixes for other issues as well. If required, I can create a separate branch which fixes only this typo and ask for review. Should I do that?

Yes, this bug has been fixed in the version of live-build in trunk on Launchpad. This version in trunk is also the latest version in upstream, which also has the fix.

Here is the link to the page where I saw the issue fixed:

I saw the problem when I tried to use the example auto/config script to build a live image.

Rigved, could you attach a minimal debdiff (changelog + the upstream changes fixing the two occurences of the issue) ?
If not, the sponsoring team can be unsubscribed and this treated as a bug-report with someone else getting on it.

I have attached a debdiff for version 3.0~a24-1ubuntu26, which includes the fix for the typo in examples/auto/config. The file cron/live-build-cron-images does not exist in the source package; so that typo cannot be fixed.

Thanks for the debdiff Rigved! Everything looks fine and I have uploaded your fix. For the future, when using quilt and adding DEP-3 comments, you do not have to prepend with '##'. I have adjusted the DEP-3 comments to be:

Description: Removed left over use of --packages-lists in examples/auto/config.
 Correct usage is --package-lists, as shown here:
