[Pulp-list] Creating RHEL 5 compatible yum repositories

Hi, When you create a repo you can manually specify the checksum using the --checksum-type flag. For sha I would recommend using "sha1" as the value in order to be as clear as possible as to which checksum type you mean. Regards,

Thanks for the lightning-fast response!
How about the specific use case of creating a net-new repository of
'SHA' type? Syncing repositories is working well for us
It's creating new ones which are giving us issues.

However, IMHO this is a non-obvious work around, and not a change I (or other system administrators) can potentially make across my entire RHEL 5 infrastructure without a lot of coordination and approvals.
