Description Greg DeKoenigsberg 2003-01-09 17:59:16 UTC
Customers want to use satellite servers as kickstart servers as well. This is reasonable. Unfortunately, RPM duplication and disk space usage becomes a problem. 90% of the RPMs in a given kickstart file tree will also be in the RPM repository for the satellite. To eliminate unnecessary duplication, we should have a de-duping copy function for RPMs that might work something like this: $ satcp /mnt/cdrom/filetree/*.rpm /var/www/pub/filetree/*.rpm Before writing each RPM to disk, satcp would check the satellite repository. If an RPM with the same(ish) name and matching MD5sum exists, create a symlink instead of copying the file. We would then document the use of this satcp script in the satellite/kickstart documentation.

Should be on my plate I guess.
Comment 2 Greg DeKoenigsberg 2003-02-03 14:52:53 UTC
Bumping priority ("provisioning" implications)

Was apparently decided in my absence that this piece is out. OK, then, out it is. And since this was a "stopgap" feature until we got "real" provisioning, we should probably close this altogether.
