RFE: ability to keep repository histories or package changes as version control
Last modified: 2015-02-28 18:39:57 EST
Description of problem:
Add version control to repository state for history, rolling back, etc.
Version-Release number of selected component (if applicable):
Never. Doesn't currently exist. We'd like it to.
Steps to Reproduce:
Currently the only method to maintain a repository version is to create a repository clone.
Ability to update, roll back, and identify repository version information.
This would be a really nice feature to have. I would envision something like the way git can tag a release. Or even the history functionality in yum may work as well. Once you know that the packages in your copy of the repo are good then you can create a tag that you can easily roll back to if needed.
Where I work we have build systems that build code for our products all day every day. It would be nice to be able to get back to a know good repo if we find an issue.
