NAME

       virt-index-validate - Validate virt-builder index file

SYNOPSIS

        virt-index-validate index

DESCRIPTION

       virt-builder(1) uses an index file to store metadata about templates that it knows how to
       use.  This index file has a specific format which virt-index-validate knows how to
       validate.

       Note that virt-index-validate can validate either the signed or unsigned index file (ie.
       either index or index.asc).  It can only validate a local file, not a URL.

OPTIONS

       --compat-1.24.0
           Check for compatibility with virt-builder 1.24.0.  (Using this option implies
           --compat-1.24.1, so you don't need to use both.)

           In particular:

           ·   This version of virt-builder could not handle "[...]"  (square brackets) in field
               names (eg. "checksum[sha512]=...").

           ·   It required detached signatures ("sig=...").

       --compat-1.24.1
           Check for compatibility with virt-builder ≥ 1.24.1.

           In particular:

           ·   This version of virt-builder could not handle "." (period) in field names or ","
               (comma) in subfield names.

           ·   It could not handle comments appearing in the file.

       --help
           Display help.

       -V
       --version
           Display version number and exit.

EXIT STATUS

       This program returns 0 if the index file validates, or non-zero if there was an error.
