Red Hat Bugzilla – Bug 467139
rhn_check's action name sanity check is fragile for different locales
Last modified: 2013-01-10 04:59:09 EST
Under the de_DE locale, the sanity() call in getMethod.py throws a unicodedecodeerror. The problem seems to come from using string.uppercase and string.lowercase, which are locale dependant. string.ascii_* should be used here instead, I believe.
An advisory has been issued which should help the problem
described in this bug report. This report is therefore being
closed with a resolution of ERRATA. For more information
