[Ovirt-devel] maintaining a mirror for remotees

One of the joys of working remotely is that you don't generally have
access to your own local repository of distro spins and packages for
doing installs. This makes virtualization development a real pain
because it seems like you're always trying to whip up some VM or other
and then having to download 800MB of packages from some slow mirror.

The alternative to this is to maintain your own local mirror. Yum has
an utility called "reposync" that supposedly does this for you. However it is
not very smart -- if the same package is in f7-i386 and f7-x86_64, for
example, which happens frequently, reposync will happily download both

Dan Berrange patched reposync to fix this at some point, although the
patches didn't make it upstream as far as I know. What the patched
version does is check any package directory you specify to see if the
package you are about to download exists. If it does, rather than
downloading it again, reposync hardlinks to it, so that as far as yum
knows you have the same package in both directories. This saves many
gigabytes of storage and bandwidth.

To make all this work you need a current version of yum-utils (I
believe that's the package name), plus the patched reposync
(attached). I run the thing from a script that I have also attached to
keep current copies of f7, f7-updates, f8, f8-updates, and rawhide
(all for both i386 and x86_64). Dan, because he is the man, also grabs
SRPMS, but I don't have the mojo for that so I don't bother with it.

I run this from a cron job at 7 p.m. daily and it is usually finished
by the time I come in the next morning (unless there has been a major
release the night before). You need to set up yum.conf files for each
repository you sync to tell reposync where to look for the
packages. You can pick your favorite mirror here or just use

Also note that if you need isos in a repo you have to download them
separately, but you really only have to do that once so no biggie.
