Repository Manager remebers ghost repository

Recommended Posts

I created a test repository (didn't even put any packages in it), then quit VIPM. I deleted the files off the disk (the repo was in a folder on my desktop). Now I open the repo manager and it looks like it's managing the repo I'd deleted. I'd expect it to error out, or maybe tell me the repo's missing (and then allow me to browse for it, or remove it from the active repo list). I had to go into the VIPM options to find the repo listing and delete it manually from there.

We considered this situation and will most likely improve the behavior in the next release. The problem is that the repository may be located on a networked computer and it's possible that you don't have network connection. So we didn't want to automatically remove it. We wanted to be more passive about checking that.

 

However, it's a great idea. I created an internal case #13474 to track this request.
