Heya Spacewalkers,

Spacewalk 0.7 is finally here!

   http://spacewalk.redhat.com/yum/0.7/RHEL/5/<arch>/
   http://spacewalk.redhat.com/yum/0.7/Fedora/11/<arch>/
   http://spacewalk.redhat.com/yum/0.7/Fedora/12/<arch>/

For the first time we split server and client part. Client repo is:

   http://spacewalk.redhat.com/yum/0.7-client/Fedora/12/<arch>/
