#1112 new defect

error message for corrupted caps to {{{tahoe ls}}} is unclear

Reported by: zooko Owned by:
Priority: major Milestone: soon
Component: code-frontend-cli Version: 1.7.0
Keywords: tahoe-ls usability newurls error Cc:
Launchpad Bug:


This is the write-cap and the read-cap respectively to the same dir:

$ tahoe ls --node-url= URI:DIR2:77mdr6nhhzqo22lvviojxbqooy:dkkrzum2rynr2sxunwn5n7arusmuxw3m27k3f4yo2t67rqzz6xiaa

This listing included unknown objects. Using a webapi server that supports
a later version of Tahoe may help.
$ tahoe ls --node-url= URI:DIR2-RO:c4kxgewzc4r7stpoo5e3rvwozy:dkkrzum2rynr2sxunwn5n7arusmuxw3m27k3f4yo2t67rqzz6xia

The write cap ends with 'xiaa', the read cap with 'xia'. Presumably the latter is correct.

Probably we should assume that future caps don't start with known prefixes (in this case URI:DIR2:), so that we could print a more sensible message.

Also, an unknown directory doesn't include unknown objects, it is an unknown object. So the message could be improved in any case.

  • Summary changed from tahoe ls with dir-write-cap fails mysteriously, with dir-read-cap works to error message for corrupted caps to {{{tahoe ls}}} is unclear
