FEDORA-2016-9e8835e370 created by adamwill 7 years ago for Fedora 25

This release changes how fedfind finds images for composes without metadata (which is basically milestone - Alpha / Beta - and stable releases). Formerly it found them by scraping rsync output, which was slow, generated quite a lot of load on both server and client, and was vulnerable to the rsync server being full. We have now tweaked things so that the primary mirror has imagelist files for the fedora, alt and archive trees which list every single image file - but no other files - in those trees. fedfind now simply parses these imagelist files to find images.

As the files only list images they are pretty small (the biggest is under 500KiB) and they are cached locally and only re-downloaded when they change, this is much faster, more efficient, and uses less bandwidth.

There are also some changes to ensure the tests run properly on EL 6, EL 7 and Fedora 23, and a missing dependency for EL 6 was added - argparse is a part of the Python standard library for all the other distros, but for EL 6 it is still a separate package.
