Re: [Gnu-arch-users] Unable to 'tla get' from public mirror -- PANIC: I/

One solution would be for get to use the official name, and succeed. Another would be for it to note the name mismatch and fail. I think the second is probably better, because after you fixed 'get', there'd be a plethora of other commands to fix, and after you fixed all the commands, the payoff would be quite small. Having get fail with a clearer error "Cannot use foo because it is registered with the wrong name. Please register it as bar" would stop people from going too far down the wrong path.

What do other people think?

Now, on a remote machine, I've made the mistake of registering with
the -MIRROR suffix. Spent quite while scratching my head, here's what
the error looks like...

$  tla get  -A address@hidden

PANIC: I/O error

damn unhelpful error. I even tried to strace it. Grrr.
