The webrev at the link below contains changes for the following

Optional: I was wondering whether 'pkgrepo fix' should automatically
invoke a rebuild if it finds that the catalog is corrupt. I know that's
mashing the same functionality into two different subcommands, but it
would save the user some trouble.
[ that is, if when running pkgrepo fix, we know that a rebuild is the
only way to fix a repository broken in this manner, why don't we just do
that for the user? Otherwise, we just get:
$ pkgrepo -s repo fix
pkgrepo: file protocol error: code: 71 reason: Catalog file
Use 'pkgrepo rebuild' to create a new package catalog.
Repository URL: 'file:///home/timf/projects/ips/pkg-gate.hg/repo'.
is there any reason why a user wouldn't want to perform a rebuild in
this scenario? ]
