Description Brian N. Smith 2019-12-11 19:23:05 UTC
Description of problem:
reposync does not honor the exclude= in the repository configuration of the repo you are trying to sync.  (Note: previous versions in RHEL 7- behaved this way).  Similarly, the include appears to be ignored too.

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

How reproducible:
Every time.

Steps to Reproduce:
1. Create zabbix.repo file

cat <<EOF > zabbix.repo
name=Zabbix 4.0

2. Run reposync command

reposync --downloadcomps \
         --config=zabbix.repo \
         --repoid=zabbix \
         --delete \
         --newest-only \

3. Complain that new version doesn't behave like previous version.

Actual results:
reposync downloads *mysql* & &japanese* rpms exist in downloaded repository

Expected results:
reposync should exclude any rpm containing *mysql* & &japanese*
