Description

Yum repo creation on rhel 6 (centos 6, etc) defaults to sha256. rhel 5 and below do not support sha256, only sha1. The createrepo command has a flag to specify which hash to use:

```
[root@dlaxktlo301 foreman]# rpm -qa| grep createrepo
createrepo-0.9.9-21.2.pulp.el6.noarch
man createrepo:

-s --checksum
Choose the checksum type used in repomd.xml and for packages in the metadata. The default is now "sha256" (if
python has hashlib). The older default was "sha", which is actually "sha1", however explicitly using "sha1"
doesn’t work on older (3.0.x) versions of yum, you need to specify "sha".
```

Having that option as a dropdown or some such while creating repositories would solve this problem.
