When using reposync to synchronize the AppStream repository using the --newest option, modules that share a name, but have multiple streams only sync the most recent stream instead of syncing the newest package from both streams. As an example, the following are the available perl module streams:
perl 5.24 common [d], minimal Practical Extraction and Report Language perl 5.26 [d] common [d], minimal Practical Extraction and Report Language
When using reposync with the '--newest' flag, only the 5.26 stream is synchronized, and the 5.24 stream is omitted.
