Description of problem:

We've synced varios Red Hat repositories. Some repo sync ran into error and had to be resumed. After that the nightly sync status was "Sync complete". While debugging a provisioning problem we've seen that there have been 183 packages with size of 0 bytes. Even if the repo sync failed we might should compare the md5sum of packages to ensure that they are re-synced again during the next repo sync.

Version-Release number of selected component (if applicable):

Currently 6.1 but the same outcome we've seen already with 6.0 even not sure if it has been based on the same root cause.

How reproducible:

Don't know exactly what has been the root cause of this issue, maybe the repo sync went to stopped with failures.

Actual results:

Broken Packages (size 0 bytes) will not automatically re-synched again.

Expected results:

Check if the package in pulp is really the package which won't be synched again (md5sum) to ensure that it is re-synched if sync failed and the package is not there or unusable.
