Sync Settings for a repository in Red Hat Satellite 6.4, there is an
Ignorable Content setting where certain types of content can be skipped during a repository sync.
One type of potentially skipped content is the
Source RPM for third-party repositories that store some SRPMS in the same repository as regular RPMs. (Red Hat-provided source RPMs are generally provided in an entirely separate repository of their own.)
In some unique situations non-SRPMs can be mistaken for source RPMs and skipped, resulting in inaccurate metada.
A sync task of that repository will return an error about a malformed repository
error: 'Malformed repository: metadata is missing for some packages in filelists.xml and in other.xml
