  • Validate cached package entries on ISS slave (bsc#1159184)
  • Do not break when syncing Oracle 7 yum channel (bsc#1158463)
  • Always use the same RPM database when running "spacewalk-repo-sync" from the command line or via taskomatic (bsc#1163468)

  • Use 'int' instead of 'long' on rhn_check for both Python 2 and 3
