Description Pierre Amadio 2005-03-27 03:58:28 EST
From Bugzilla Helper:
User-Agent: Mozilla/5.0 (X11; U; Linux i686; en-US; rv:1.7.6) Gecko/20050323 Firefox/1.0.2 Fedora/1.0.2-1.3.1

Description of problem:
rhn api list_latest_packages returns inapprorpiate data type for packages_version https://rhn.redhat.com/rpc/api/channel/software/list_latest_packages/

If the package_version of a given rpm may be interpreted as a string, it returns a string instead of an integer.

This may be problematic for such packages as the current udev when one expect '039' as version   and not 39.

Version-Release number of selected component (if applicable):

How reproducible:

Steps to Reproduce:
1. ask for list_latest_packages for a given channel
2. display all 'package_version' 


Actual Results:  you get a mix of integer and strings

Expected Results:  only strings
