Pulp: 0.206

Release Notes:

* Run 'pulp-migrate' up upgrade DB.

* Added support for custom metadata:
- Ability to add Metadata to pulp repositories via API and CLI.
- Ability to list Metadata info in a pulp repositories via API and CLI.
- Ability to download Metadata files by type from a pulp repositories via API and CLI.
- Repo syncs should automatically sync down any custom Metadata
- Repo cloning should get the custom metadata from its parent/origin
- metadata call have been renamed to generate_metadata
- generate_metadata has been revamed to account for any mdtype in yum repodata

* New option --preserve_metadata on repo create if a repo needs to act as a mirror
and keep the downloaded metadata intact.

* We've known for a while that we've been pushing our luck using both mod_wsgi and
mod_python. As of this release, we've removed the dependency on mod_python, which was
previously used for our repository authentication. The caveat is that the current mod_wsgi
version doesn't support access to the client's SSL certificate, which we need. To get
around this, we're building a patched version of mod_wsgi (mod_wsgi-3.2-3.sslpatch) which
is available in our repository. The Pulp RPMs have a dependency on this version and should
upgrade it automatically for you.

* Added the infrastructure to support union and intersection for queries that specify more
than one parameter. Support for this has been added to repository-related queries and will
be extended across the rest of Pulp in the future.

* Errata search has been enhanced to provide queries based on CVE and BZ number.

* Various enhancements were made to our LDAP Support (Contributor: Chris St. Pierre). See

* Pulp's sync library, Grinder, now uses a process-based approach instead of thread-based
to correct a number of concurrency issues dealing with the underlying security libraries.

* Pulp's QPID-based agent framework and messaging lib now contains a workaround for
python-qpid (driver) concurrency issues. This mitigates most of the QPID issues we've been
seeing excluding those involving the use of the qpid message store (discontinued for pulp)
and those related to VPN reset between broker and clients.

* 30 bug fixes, accessible through query

* Special thanks to Chris St. Pierre for his contributions to Pulp. In addition to
feedback on usage and direction for the product, he submitted a number of patches to the
Pulp team. Beefy patches too, not just fixing a typo here or there, but things like
significant fixes to our LDAP support.
