#1052 assigned defect

"tahoe backup": report EnvironmentError more precisely

Reported by: zooko Owned by: davidsarah
Priority: minor Milestone: soon
Component: code-frontend-cli Version: 1.6.1
Keywords: error tahoe-backup usability easy Cc:
Launchpad Bug:


tahoe backup catches EnvironmentError and then prints out "permission denied". Couldn't there be other reasons for EnvironmentError besides permission denial, such as "no such file or directory"? Why not just give the user the error message that the underlying exception offers, which might have more information.
