Re: [Pulp-list] add_package with --preserve metadata ?

As far as i can see the add_package has no options has --preserve_metadata. After adding a package to a repo , generate_metadata creates a metadata that uses a higher SHA value than --preserve_metadata does . Is there a workaround to this ?

Hello , i used pulp-admin repo create --preserve_metadata --id centos5_os_x86_64 -- feed http://mirror.centos.org/centos-5/5/os/x86_64/ to create a repo and it works flawlessly I now have another repo with a similar --preserve-metadata option created where i will be having all custom rpm's wanted to add a few new rpm's to this newly created repo . My question is using pul-admin package add i can add additional packages to the repo . Does this command also run createrepo when executed ? and if it does , is there an equivalent of --preserve-metadata when using package add ? dont see much info in the docs so i came asking here :)


For repositories that you are not "mirroring", such as this custom rpm repo, do not use the --preserve-metadata option when creating the repo. Since you will managing package adds/removals via Pulp, the repodata will need to be created locally. With regards to the checksum; if you are wanting the repo to use "SHA1" vs "SHA256"; you can use the --checksum_type when creating the repo initially.
