Red Hat Bugzilla – Bug 190945
yum lacks --downloadonly option
Last modified: 2014-01-21 17:54:25 EST
For machines with crap bandwidth, or where bandwidth is limited during certain
hours, it would be good to download packages overnight. I wouldn't want to
_install_ stuff automatically each night -- that really wants to be a manual
thing. But I'm happy to run 'yum -y --downloadonly update' from cron.
Created attachment 128698 [details]
implemented in a plugin and I'll go ahead and add it to yum-utils.
