ACK as fix for 5142.

I don't think that it fixes 5143. The traceback is fixed therefore 5143
doesn't occur but if there was other traceback raised by
`self.api.Command.vault_archive(*args, **opts)` then the vault added in
`response = self.api.Command.vault_add_internal(*args, **options)` would
be still created.

Yes, that is correct. There aren't any arguments that can lead to an
exception. The arguments are either already validated by vault_add() or
don't raise an error.

Of course there are plenty of opportunities errors. The connection to
the IPA or LDAP server could fail, NSS DB could be missing and so on.
How should we handle an error in vault_archive? Is there another way
then to delete the new vault all along?

      self.api.Command.vault_archive(*args, **opts)
except Exception:
      self.api.Command.vault_del(*args, **opts)


Imho this is the way. But it may fail because of the same root cause as

That said I don't see #5142 as a priority and would defer it.

I'd still like to see my patch for #5142 in RHEL, too. It prevents
accidental exposure of private keys, too. In the test case the test
uploads his private keys to the server. FreeIPA should not leak a user's
private key. My patch prevents that, too.

Sorry, wrong number. I meant defer #5143. The patch for #5142 is OK.
