wanna know something funny? The S3 mirror tool that we need for the
repos, is a tool that could easily be made a very useful public tool. A
tool that does something simple, such as take a flat-file structure - and
has rsync-like functionality using basic GET/POST/PUT calls (such as how S3
is used)...would be fantastic. It would be very useful to the community.
This reminds me, we package an S3 server (tabled) in Fedora since F12.
I do not quite understand what the advantage of integrating yum
with S3 would be, but we can do it in Fedora today if we want.
 Could even just look at s3sync.rb as a place to start a
fork from; that tool is slow and doesn't copy large amounts of info, but
it's at least a start (even if it's in Ruby...).
Yeah Ruby is a no-go. Fortunately yum itself is in Python, and Boto
is not all that bad as a library.
