There is a known issue  introduced in 2.8.0 which will cause your
tasks to become stuck at waiting. This occurs after Pulp runs normally
for hours or days.
A fix is completed but won't be released until Pulp 2.8.3 is released.
The good news is, you can resolve that issue now by upgrading
python-kombu on your existing 2.8.0, 2.8.1, or 2.8.2 system. Manually
install python-kombu-3.0.33-5.pulp for your distro on your system,
restart Pulp services and you'll be all set. All of the links below come
out of the Pulp build system
F24: update is in -testing repo 
rawhide: already available in stable
These are the same versions of python-kombu that you'll receive when
2.8.3 comes out so upgrading this package will keep your packages on the
normal upgrade path. These newer python-kombu versions are compatible
with 2.8.0, 2.8.1, and 2.8.2 versions of Pulp.
