    Default Build Service: Branch Checkout

    Hello all

    This may or may not be the right place to ask, but why, when trying to branch a package from a specific project, do I get something entirely different?

    Case in point, using osc on the command line, but same occurs via the web interface:

    Code:
    osc bco  openSUSE:12.1  MozillaThunderbird
    And I get, e.g.,:

    Code:
    add-plugins.sh.in
    compare-locales.tar.bz2
    create-tar.sh
    enigmail-1.3.2.tar.gz
    find-external-requires.sh
    l10n-7.0.1.tar.bz2
    mozilla-cairo-return.patch
    mozilla-curl.patch
    mozilla-dump_syms-static.patch
    mozilla-language.patch
    mozilla-linux3.patch
    mozilla-shared-nss-db.patch
    mozilla.sh.in
    MozillaThunderbird.changes
    MozillaThunderbird.desktop
    MozillaThunderbird-rpmlintrc
    MozillaThunderbird.spec
    suse-default-prefs.js
    tb-develdirs.patch
    tb-ssldap.patch
    thunderbird-7.0.1-source.tar.bz2
    thunderbird-shared-nss-db.patch
    But if I do this instead:

    Code:
    osc bco  openSUSE:12.1  MozillaThunderbird
    What I get is this:

    Code:
    add-plugins.sh.in
    compare-locales.tar.bz2
    _constraints
    create-tar.sh
    enigmail-1.5.1.tar.gz
    enigmail-old-gcc.patch
    find-external-requires.sh
    kde.js
    l10n-17.0.5.tar.bz2
    mozilla-arm-disable-edsp.patch
    mozilla-gcc43-enums.patch
    mozilla-gcc43-template_hacks.patch
    mozilla-gcc43-templates_instantiation.patch
    mozilla-kde.patch
    mozilla-language.patch
    mozilla-nongnome-proxies.patch
    mozilla-ppc.patch
    mozilla-shared-nss-db.patch
    mozilla.sh.in
    MozillaThunderbird.changes
    MozillaThunderbird.spec
    suse-default-prefs.js
    tb-develdirs.patch
    tb-ssldap.patch
    thunderbird-17.0.5-source.tar.bz2
    thunderbird.desktop
    thunderbird-rpmlintrc
    thunderbird-shared-nss-db.patch
    In other words, it's gone from version 7 to version 17 for no apparent reason. This confuses me.

    For those wondering what I am trying to do: I've just upgraded my laptop to 12.3, and Thunderbird is a bloody disaster. It refuses to talk to certain SMTP servers with an invalid certificate error (while the exact same Thunderbird on another machine also running 12.3 works fine) and its rendering is a catastrophe (missing characters, fails to redraw, message pane simply goes gray, ...), so I have decided to try to go back to what I had before. But this is beside the point.

    Hi
    In the second case you are branching the maintained package, the first one is to a specific project/package. Using osc se (search) and osc sm (maintained) shows the difference. Also 12.1 is EOL and disabled....
