Quoting Adrian Likins <alikins(a)redhat.com>:
New up2date for testing. Somewhat notable new
feature of support for 3rd party yum and apt
repos. See /etc/sysconfig/rhn/sources for info
on configuring them (docs to come).
Whoa.. cool! :) Had a quick look over aptRepo.py, a couple of comments on
findings in there:
1) "# assuming this is always bz2?" - yes, it's always bz2. There can be an
uncompressed version of the file as well but then who the heck wants to download
an uncompressed file when the .bz2 file is there... legacy stuff.
2) "# FIXME .." comment wrt the repository layout and finding the package -
yes there are basically two kinds of repositories, "traditional" and
of which flat one is what almost everybody uses nowadays. Supporting to trad
layout where RPMS and SRPMS are on a different directory level would be nice but
I wouldn't consider lack of it as a showstopper at all.
In addition to the apt/yum repos, it also
now supports using a local dir of rpms as
This is really nice one!
