#26015 closed Bug (fixed)

sitemap view can raise UnboundLocalError

Reported by: Keryn Knight Owned by: Andrew Kuchev
Component: contrib.sitemaps Version: dev
Severity: Normal Keywords:

Given the following urlconf definition:

from django.contrib.sitemaps.views import sitemap
url(r'^sitemap.xml$', sitemap, {'sitemaps': {}}, name='is_broken')

any attempt to load that URL will raise:

UnboundLocalError at /sitemap.xml
local variable 'site' referenced before assignment

because if hasattr(site, 'latest_lastmod') attempts to access site which is only ever set if for site in maps yields at least one iteration.

It should instead return an empty urlset, or possibly raise an Http404 with an appropriate debug message.

While the related ticket is resolved and this should be fixed, it would be useful to add a regression test for this case.
