Description Alexander Kahl 2009-09-04 09:42:20 UTC
This bug involves createrepo.

Recently after the change to use SHA256 checksums by default for yum metadata created by createrepo as defined in
/usr/lib/python2.6/site-packages/createrepo/__init__.py:62
creating RHEL repositories with mash is broken as said systems still demand SHA1 checksums and while createrepo itself offers an option (-s) to override the checksum method, mash does not, neither on the command line nor in its configuration files.

Please provide such an option for legacy systems.

Package versions:
- mash-0.5.3-1.fc11.noarch
- createrepo-0.9.7-7.fc11.noarch

Comment 1 Bill Nottingham 2009-09-04 16:46:44 UTC
This was fixed in the rawhide 0.5.4 version; I suppose I should push an update for F11.

Hi Bill,

thanks for the quick reaction. Unfortunately I'm on vacation now and able to verify the fix on 20 September earliest.

Best regards
Alex

Comment 6 Alexander Kahl 2009-11-24 12:45:23 UTC
Looks really good, thank you!
I'd be nice to some more documentation for mash however, even the obligatory manpage is missing and I had to look up mash's sources to find out the parameter name "hash".
