       An update that fixes 16 vulnerabilities is now available.
    
    Description:
    
       This update for rmt-server fixes the following issues:
    
       Update to version 2.6.5:
       - Solved potential bug of SCC repository URLs changing over time. RMT now
         self heals by removing the previous invalid repository and creating the
         correct one.
       - Add web server settings to /etc/rmt.conf: Now it's possible to configure
         the minimum and maximum threads count as well the number of web server
         workers to be booted through /etc/rmt.conf.
       - Instead of using an MD5 of URLs for custom repository friendly_ids, RMT
         now builds an ID from the name.
       - Fix RMT file caching based on timestamps: Previously, RMT sent GET
         requests with the header 'If-Modified-Since' to a repository server and
         if the response had a 304 (Not Modified), it would copy a file from the
         local cache instead of downloading. However, if the local file timestamp
         accidentally changed to a date newer than the one on the repository
         server, RMT would have an outdated file, which caused some errors. Now,
         RMT makes HEAD requests to the repositories servers and inspect the
         'Last-Modified' header to decide whether to download a file or copy it
         from cache, by comparing the equalness of timestamps.
       - Fixed an issue where relative paths supplied to `rmt-cli import repos`
         caused the command to fail.
       - Friendlier IDs for custom repositories: In an effort to simplify the
         handling of SCC and custom repositories, RMT now has friendly IDs. For
         SCC repositories, it's the same SCC ID as before. For custom
         repositories, it can either be user provided
         or RMT generated (MD5 of the provided URL). Benefits:
         * `rmt-cli mirror repositories` now works for custom repositories.
         * Custom repository IDs can be the same across RMT instances.
         * No more confusing "SCC ID" vs "ID" in `rmt-cli` output. Deprecation
           Warnings:
         * RMT now uses a different ID for custom repositories than before. RMT
           still supports that old ID, but it's recommended to start using the
           new ID to ensure future compatibility.
       - Updated rails and puma dependencies for security fixes.
