Bug ID: 978449
Summary: zypper creates /var/cache/zypper/ directory and
forgets to cleanup (zypper in ./foo.rpm)
Classification: openSUSE
Product: openSUSE Tumbleweed
Version: Current
Hardware: Other
OS: openSUSE 13.2
Status: NEW
Severity: Normal
Priority: P5 - None
Component: libzypp
Assignee: zypp-maintainers@xxxxxxxxxxxxxxxxxxxxxx
Reporter: suse-beta@xxxxxxxxx
QA Contact: qa-bugs@xxxxxxx
Found By: Beta-Customer
Blocker: ---

When installing a manually downloaded RPM using
zypper in ./foo.rpm

zypper does
- create the directory /var/cache/zypper/RPMS/
- copy foo.rpm to /var/cache/zypper/RPMS/
- add a temporary plaindir repo for /var/cache/zypper/RPMS/
- install the package
- remove the temporary repo

Unfortunately it does NOT delete foo.rpm from /var/cache/zypper/RPMS/
afterwards, and (obviously) also doesn't delete the directory.

Please tell zypper to cleanup after itsself ;-)

You might also want to use a place in an existing directory - maybe somewhere
in /var/cache/zypp/ ?
