Re: [Pulp-list] Creating RHEL 5 compatible yum repositories



This was a known bug with 2.1.3 and has been fixed in version 2.3.

Hi,

Just as a follow-up to my last note: as of 2.1.3, setting the checksum-type
to sha or sha1 was not sufficient.  You will still end up with groupinfo
and updateinfo metadata files created with sha256 checksums unless you
change the Python for modifyrepo.

/usr/share/createrepo/modifyrepo.py
