I’m working on an update for nethserver-arm and the most labor intensive (and nagging) thing is to update the epel mirror for armhpf.
So about time to utilize reposync! For now I have a very crude bash script that reeds the package names from text files that should be included and syncs them to a local mirror.
# add content of all files in ./include
for i in $INCLUDES
echo "including packages for $i"
cat $i >> yum-mirror-epel.conf
echo -n " " >> yum-mirror-epel.conf
# sync repository
reposync -l --config=yum-mirror-epel.conf --repoid=mirror-epel \
--norepopath --newest-only --delete
What would really make it easy is to find out which packages form the epel-repo’s every single nethserver-package depends on. (yes: I should have documented that!) I tried all kinds of repoquery / yum depend commands but none of them gave me the this info
Any ideas how to get this list?
even better ideas to accomplish a contentiously up-to-date epel-snapshot?
