Account for different datetime format in Suse errata
Suse uses a different datetime format than what pulp currently expects. Instead of a formatted data and time, they use seconds since Epoch. This is preventing pulp from correctly parsing the date, leading to a blank entry.
Example: <issued date="1519129773" />
Suse's documentation on their updateinfo metadata: https://en.opensuse.org/openSUSE:Standards_Rpm_Metadata_UpdateInfo
1. Sync a suse repository that contains errata.
2. Check that pulp correctly has the expected date.

I've talked to @ttereshc about this, issued date in pulp is just a string, so pulp store whatever is provided in the suse errata to the database. This is one errata item from SUSE in the pulp db after sync , note that issued date is present.
Issued date is also not used for comparison anywhere, so the different format should not be a problem.
Updated date on the other hand is used for comparison, but SUSE does not use the updated field, so that should not be an issue either.
