/etc/sysconfig/rhn/sources has:

rpmmd  wibble file:///usr/local/rawhide/i386/


rpmmd wibble

up2date -l yields:

# up2date -l

Comment 1 Jos Vos 2005-03-18 17:55:12 EST
Probably because registering "rpmmd" in RepoDirectory.py (last lines) is
commented out (this is the case since long, also in FC4t1's up2date it seems :-( ).
Comment 2 Jason Connor 2005-04-14 13:22:06 EDT
Uncommented the rpmmd repo registration and fixed problem with outdated API
Seems to be working with multiple installs and updates from a rpmmd repo
Comment 3 Adrian Likins 2005-04-26 17:34:57 EDT
rpmmd support has been rewritten as "repomd", it now uses the
YumBase api to do this and will use the same config as yum
(aka, /etc/yum.repos.d) if enabled.
