      Description

      Problem description: AIX RPMs do not generate important metadata

      What is the impact to the customer - What are they trying to achieve? The customer would like to use Artifactory to install AIX RPM packages

      Steps to reproduce: 

      1. Create a remote RPM repository to https://public.dhe.ibm.com/aix/freeSoftware/aixtoolbox/RPMS/ppc/
      2. Pull a package from the remote (EX: Zoo)
        wget http://artifactory:8081/artifactory/rpm-aix/zoo/zoo-2.10-5.aix5.1.ppc.rpm
      3. Copy the package to a local repository
      4. Compare the repodata/*-primary.xml.gz files:

      Expected: The metadata for the zoo package is the same in both the primary.xml.gz from the remote cache and from the local repository

      Actual: The metadata is different in the remote and local. More specifically, the metadata in the local repository is missing some key information. For instance, regarding the <rpm:provides> tag:

      Remote repodata/*-primary.xml.gz for zoo-2.10-5.aix5.1.ppc.rpm:

      <rpm:provides>
         <rpm:entry name="zoo" flags="EQ" epoch="0" ver="2.10" rel="5"/></rpm:provides> 

       

      Whereas the values in local repodata/*-primary.xml.gz for zoo-2.10-5.aix5.1.ppc.rpm:

      <rpm:provides/>
