reposync / yum-utils package does not count with existence of modules in RHEL8

Solution Verified - Updated -


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.
