Description Dennis Gregorovic 2010-11-24 20:41:45 UTC
There are several use cases in which we would like to be able to group and/or select yum repositories based on attributes about them.

example 1) enable all 'source' repos
example 2) enable all 'debuginfo' repos
example 3) operate on a 'releases' repo and its corresponding 'updates' repo
example 4) compare 'target' os of layered application repository with the actual os installed

A discussion around this can be found at

This would be of value to RHEL and is something we should consider implementing.
