Red Hat Bugzilla – Bug 749853
backport new python-rhsm API calls present in 6.2 for 5.8
Last modified: 2012-02-21 01:44:34 EST
Description of problem:
As part of RHEL 5.8, subscription-manager will have some new features that were introduced in 6.2. The 5.8 version of python-rhsm requires certain features to be backported from 6.2 in order to support this. These features are already supported in candlepin, this bug is just for exposing these via the python-rhsm wrapper.
* new bind API call
* new API calls for environment information
* package profiling API
* expose stacking ID from entitlement cert
* expose virt-only flag from entitlement cert
The QE for this is already laid out in the subscription-manager 5.8 plan; python-rhsm is a library used by subscription-manager that is not tested by itself.
This request was evaluated by Red Hat Product Management for
inclusion in the current release of Red Hat Enterprise Linux.
Because the affected component is not scheduled to be updated in the
current release, Red Hat is unfortunately unable to address this
request at this time. Red Hat invites you to ask your support
representative to propose this request, if appropriate and relevant,
in the next release of Red Hat Enterprise Linux.

This is a general bug porting functionality from 6.2 to 5.8. the 5.8 version of rhsm wouldn't work at all if this wasn't done apperently.
