 The "current" yum-avahi is at:


...AIUI it "works", the problem is that it basically stores extra
foo.repo files on the "avahi network" and so any local attacker can
override the client machines gpg checking settings etc.
 So it needs to move to just add the extra local URL at the front of the
mirrors list, and probably be cleanedup/spedup a bit. Then there is the
design of what it does now:

 It is designed to present a full mirror to the clients, which isn't
that useful. What we'd want is more like "box X already download
primary.sqlite and perl, so when you do 'yum update' on box Y get those
packages from it".

 The server part of it also needs some work, so it's integrated into
yum-updatesd or something and generally is cleaner/safer. As now you
have to run a specific server just for the avahi bits.
