   An update that has three recommended fixes can now be


   This update for rmt-server fixes the following issues:

   - Update the way allowed paths are checked SUMA requested a new feature
     where it is possible to validate all versions of the same product and
     arch (that are allowed to that system)

   - De-register BYOS systems using RMT as a proxy from SCC
   - De-activate a single product from a BYOS proxy system

   - Add the handling of the BYOS systems that use RMT as a SCC proxy In
     order to do that:
   - New boolean column in systems table in db: proxy_byos
   - Skip the sync with SCC (using that column)
   - Registration of the system to SCC (announce system call and then use SCC
   - Activation of products
   - Check subscription is active/valid for a product/repo to be accessed

   - Version 2.7.0
   - Add subscription support in RMT. RMT can now consume registration codes
     supplied when registering a system.
   - Add host's login header to API requests to SCC. If the information is
     available, RMT will send it on requests to attach the registration proxy
     to a host system in SCC.
   - Add extra check to product dependency on RMT API. Now, when a system
     tries to activate a module through RMT, if it requires a root product
     which is not activated, the activation will fail (bsc#951189).
   - Load global configuration only if it can be ready by the current process.

   - Version 2.6.12
   - Re-fix broken symlinks: This version fixes the bug-fix deployed with
     version 2.6.11. Reference bug (bsc#1188043)
   - Handle special characters in package names (bsc#1189805)
