Description James Bowes 2008-03-20 14:32:23 EDT
the code lives under scripts, but scripts installs some cron jobs
Comment 1 James Bowes 2008-03-25 08:16:10 EDT
repomd-precache is used by SOC to refresh the rhel5 and up repository metadata
after an environment refresh or after releasing a new rhel revision.

Because the data it creates is accessed by clients, the program must be on
xmlserver class machines.

Right now the code is under the rhns-scripts rpm dir, but we can't install those
rpms on xmlservers, because the rpms set up some cron jobs we wouldn't want
running there.
Comment 2 James Bowes 2008-03-28 11:32:10 EDT
it's now included in rhnh-python-xmlrpc and installed in /usr/bin
