Koji builders have never downloaded packages via XMLRPC. All
downloading is done by mock/yum, via http (previously nfs).
This behavior is controlled by kojid options. If you specify the
'topurl' option for kojid, then the mock configs it generates will use
an http:// url to point to the repo. Otherwise it will use a file:// url
(using the value of the 'topdir' option, which defaults to /mnt/koji).
Also, the use of a file:// url doesn't have to mean nfs. You could
theoretically use another shared file system.
You could potentially use squid locally to cache downloaded
You'd configure pkgurl in koji.conf to point to your local squid
instance at "http://localhost:8080/koji/packages" or something similar,
and configure squid to pull from the actual http location
where /mnt/koji/packages is being served.
This is the approach I would recommend.
