Comment 1 Stephen Herr 2012-04-24 11:36:30 EDT
Basic gist of the original comment is that the regex used in /usr/bin/apply_errata in the getSysId() method should be:

pattern = re.compile(">ID-([0-9]{10})<")

pattern = re.compile("[0-9][0-9][0-9][0-9][0-9][0-9][0-9][0-9][0-9][0-9]")

The latter will pick up the first 10-digit number it finds in the file, which can be something other than the sysId. 

Thanks for the patch Dimitar, committing to Spacewalk master as 8563013e13a6b6166bce4bc6c9e130b5c9d95ba2
