last-update.log not created if it does not already exist the patch for bug 311531 was not quite right :-(
Created attachment 200948 [details] [diff] [review] v1 patch
Darin, is the ramification here that we won't be able to get update logs from users using the RC? This doesn't effect the success of software update right?
It means that in order to get log files from users in the field, we will need them to create an empty "updates/last-update.log" before they attempt to apply the update.
I suspect we won't slip and respin the RC to pick this up. But this would be a good ride along candidate if we end up doing an RC2 or something bigger comes up with RC1. adding our tracking text for that: "not going to lose a day with this but could become a ride-along if we're forced to respin by some other bug."
*** Bug 314078 has been marked as a duplicate of this bug. ***
There's no choice anyaway for a RC2, we have a couple of good patches that we would need, that are not risky, like this one.
moving out to the 1.8 rc2 ride-along candidate list. We'll consider taking this if we do an RC2.
I landed this for Darin.
