I am the author of a tool called mrepo/rhnget, which basically automates the download of RPMs from Red Hat Network channels and offers them as
repositories. I came across some companies using a combined mrepo/Spacewalk setup, and thanks to Google I found some references to this list.

Since I learned that feeding a repository to Spacewalk is not that easy and requires some magic, I was wondering whether it would be nice to have some better integration of mrepo with Spacewalk, so the nightly cron job running mrepo would automatically feed new packages into Spacewalk channels.

Now before we can implement such integration, it is essential that we understand how people are using mrepo and Spacewalk together in the field and what other functionality is required for an integration as complete as possible (eg. errata info, group info, filtering based on metadata, ...)

The more information we can collect regarding this, the better.

We recently moved mrepo development to Github, and I opened an issue at Github to track information regarding Spacewalk integration at:


If you are using mrepo and Spacewalk in your environment and you have some feedback, ideas or code to share, please do so on the Github forum.

Thanks Dag, would like to share that we are using mrepo/spacewalk at our end in SIT and Production environments. It works really great for us so far. Would like to know how we can configure mrepo installed on a RHEL5 box to sync with Novell Customer center and pull updates for SLES 11 SP1.

Thanks once again, for the great mrepo tool :)


Nevermind Dag, I figured this last night and now I can't wait to push the updates to SLES clients.
