An update that fixes 16 vulnerabilities is now available.


This update for rmt-server fixes the following issues:

Update to version 2.6.5:
– Solved potential bug of SCC repository URLs changing over time. RMT now
self heals by removing the previous invalid repository and creating the
correct one.
– Add web server settings to /etc/rmt.conf: Now it’s possible to configure
the minimum and maximum threads count as well the number of web server
workers to be booted through /etc/rmt.conf.
– Instead of using an MD5 of URLs for custom repository friendly_ids, RMT
now builds an ID from the name.
– Fix RMT file caching based on timestamps: Previously, RMT sent GET
requests with the header ‘If-Modified-Since’ to a repository server and
if the response had a 304 (Not Modified), it would copy a file from the
local cache instead of downloading. However, if the local file timestamp
accidentally changed to a date newer than the one on the repository
server, RMT would have an outdated file, which caused some errors. Now,
RMT makes HEAD requests to the repositories servers and inspect the
‘Last-Modified’ header to decide whether to download a file or copy it
from cache, by comparing the equalness of timestamps.
– Fixed an issue where relative paths supplied to `rmt-cli import repos`
caused the command to fail.
– Friendlier IDs for custom repositories: In an effort to simplify the
handling of SCC and custom repositories, RMT now has friendly IDs. For
SCC repositories, it’s the same SCC ID as before. For custom
repositories, it can either be user provided
or RMT generated (MD5 of the provided URL). Benefits:
* `rmt-cli mirror repositories` now works for custom repositories.
* Custom repository IDs can be the same across RMT instances.
* No more confusing “SCC ID” vs “ID” in `rmt-cli` output. Deprecation
* RMT now uses a different ID for custom repositories than before. RMT
still supports that old ID, but it’s recommended to start using the
new ID to ensure future compatibility.
– Updated rails and puma dependencies for security fixes.
