Subject Re: Local repositories not being used
Date Thu, 01 Aug 2013 04:53:43 GMT
Glad I was able to help!
BTW, there's some work going on to enhance local repo setup user experience
to avoid running into an issue like this in the first place.
Currently there's a disconnect between manually editing the "local" version
of the stack to specify the repo URLs and then remembering to check the
local repo checkbox in the UI.  Also, if you make typos in the repo URLs,
you won't find out until much later when you deploy (which is a pain).
In the future this will all be done via the web UI with repo URL
validations, etc. (and of course REST API endpoints to do all that).
