reposync now by default skips packages whose location falls outside the destination directory

Previously, the reposync command did not sanitize paths to packages specified in a remote repository, which was insecure. A security fix for CVE-2018-10897 has changed the default behavior of reposync to not store any packages outside the specified destination directory. To restore the original insecure behavior, use the new --allow-path-traversal option. (BZ#1609302)
