Description Rahul Sundaram 2007-06-25 13:30:34 EDT
Description of problem: Jidgo is available in Fedora but we haven't integrated it into Fedora releases. It would be good to have a target for Fedora 8 esp since we don't offer regular CD installations anymore since Fedora 7. Expected results: Jidgo integrated as part of the Fedora 8 release and beyond. Additional info: https://www.redhat.com/archives/fedora-advisory-board/2007-May/msg00050.html (script attached) https://www.redhat.com/archives/fedora-list/2007-June/msg05396.html (recent request)

In addition to http and ftp downloads for jigdo, it would be really spiffy (and I bet fairly complex too :-), to allow jigdo to fetch rpms via torrent and have an "entire repo" torrent, which it would be even cooler to integrate with the yum rpm cache so as to allow any users who want to seed the rpms they have already downloaded. The best part of that would be that the most popular rpms would have the most seeders.

Torrent is actually pretty horrible for small files. Great(ish) for isos, horrible for small files.
Comment 3 Jeroen van Meeuwen 2007-11-10 19:24:43 EST
I was told Release Engineering was looking for a volunteer to integrate jigdo into the release process, so here I am. Fedora Unity has been releasing Fedora 8 CD sets which kind of function as a proof of concept. Could we make this a feature for Fedora 9?
Comment 4 Jesse Keating 2007-11-15 11:47:14 EST
We can certainly try. Can you make it to one of the next Fedora Release Engineering meetings to talk about this?
Comment 5 Jeroen van Meeuwen 2007-11-18 10:58:10 EST
Yes I could. I'll attend to the next Release Engineering meeting if I can or let you know that I'm unavailable... Meanwhile, I drafted up a document on JigdoReleases at http://fedoraproject.org/wiki/Features/JigdoRelease
Comment 6 Jesse Keating 2008-02-28 15:17:48 EST
So this is stagnating pretty bad. We're just a couple days away from Fedora 9 beta freeze, and I haven't seen any code for this yet. Perhaps punt to F10?
Comment 7 Matt Domsch 2008-04-20 22:05:01 EDT
F9 Preview release on the mirrors has jigdo now, thanks guys. Can we close this?
Comment 8 Rahul Sundaram 2008-04-20 22:09:22 EDT
Yep. We need some good documentation but that is a side feature. Closing.
