Description Chris Duryee 2011-10-28 13:42:12 EDT
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.
Comment 1 RHEL Product and Program Management 2011-10-28 13:47:46 EDT
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.

Comment 4 J.C. Molet 2011-12-08 10:56:06 EST
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.

The smoke tests are passing: 


Showing that these fixes made it.
