Put repomd-precache.py in an rpm that can be installed on the xmlservers
Last modified: 2013-01-10 04:58:05 EST
the code lives under scripts, but scripts installs some cron jobs
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
it's now included in rhnh-python-xmlrpc and installed in /usr/bin
On dev on rhnxml box--all set in dev
