5.39. createrepo

An updated createrepo package that fixes one bug is now available for Red Hat Enterprise Linux 6.
This package contains scripts that generate a common metadata repository from a directory of RPM packages.

Bug Fix

Prior to this update, the shebang line of the modifyrepo.py script contained "#!/usr/bin/env python", so the system path was used to locate the Python executable. When another version of Python was installed on the system, and "/usr/local/python" was specified in the PATH environment variable, scripts did not work due to Python compatibility problems. With this update, the shebang line is modified to "#!/usr/bin/python", so that the system version of Python is always used.
All users of createrepo are advised to upgrade to this updated package, which fixes this bug.
