Right now there doesn't appear to be a method of using yum plugins. This could
be useful, if I ever write the plugin to prefer downloading from one repo
instead of others when all things are equal.
Is there another example that you can think of? Repository selection and
priority specification isn't really an issue with mock because the yum
repositories are completely spelled out in each chroot configuration. That is,
in my build environment I use alternate chroot configuration files specifically
for that purpose.
yum plugins *should* just work if you enable them in the config file. You just
have to be careful because all plugins that are enabled on the host will be used.
Hey, is this still an issue? Also, just curious - is this still the main product in bugzilla where mock bugs are tracked? I'd be nice to get rid of the fedora hosted product soon because it seems to cause a lot of confusion with where to properly submit bugs :-/
it would be nice to consolidate bug reports and patch submission but that's going to be tough, since we have mock for both Fedora and RHEL (or EPEL if you prefer).
As far as the RFE goes, I think we need to ask Jesse if we need something besides the mock config file to manipulate yum plugins.
mock config file is just fine.
Ok, I'm closing as worksforme
