[opensuse-releaseteam] Newer version of libsolv-tools required on packagelists for repo-checker

openSUSE:Factory:Staging:adi:1 contains packages that use rich deps syntax
which confuse the installcheck tool which intern causes repo-checker to spit
out an error. This error would have caused the previous repo-checker to
silently crash and accept the review. :) Running repo-checker on a Tumbleweed
machine results in a pass, but on the packagelists machine results in a

The difference appears to be libsolv-tools:

Tumbleweed = 0.6.28
SLE-12-SP2 = 0.6.26

The resulting error:

could not add repo /tmp/repochecker-iewAELU/packages: susetags: line 5466484:
unknown relation: 'if'

It seems the most straightforward approach would be to use a newer version
libsolv on the machine. SLE-12-SP3 provides libsolv-0.6.27 which seems to
handle the syntax when run in a test container. As such the best solution is
likely to update the machine to SP3.

On a more general note this is likely to reoccur when new features are
introduced into rpm and used in Factory as the packagelists machine will
always be using trailing versions of libsolv. As such it might make more sense
to run the repo-checker within a docker container running the latest
Tumbleweed snapshot to ensure access to the latest underlying tooling. Any
opinions on doing this? I'll file an issue in osc-plugin-factory to track

With the rpm package built that contains the repo-checker it should not be
hard to run things in a docker container.

What is the workflow for updating the packagelists machine?
