#251 Advise users that updates/ ref should be deleted

Created 8 months ago by walters

Since https://pagure.io/fedora-lorax-templates/pull-request/10 we have a regression; users with freshly installed systems will need to:

ostree refs --delete fedora-atomic:fedora-atomic/25/x86_64/updates/docker-host

in order to avoid leaking space. I think for now let's just have this as a "known bug" - we could include a systemd unit which detects this case and fixes it at some point though.

we fixed this already though, right: https://pagure.io/atomic-wg/issue/241

this does mean that users of the images that were released could see a problem in the future, yes

colin can you draft something that we can put on projectatomic.io blog that explains the problem and why it could be an issue if it doesn't get cleaned up?

@jlebon - do you think you could draft a statement? Some of the details aren't so clear to me. I know there is an extra ref laying around and that means things won't get cleaned up when they should --> out of space issues. Do you mind writing something up?

I personally didn't like the idea of blogging this on projectatomic.io since it's kind of advertising an "oops". I can write up something for atomic @projectatomic.io though.

Ideally someone would be able to find it via Google but that's hard.

either way works for me
