#266 closed enhancement (fixed)

Fedora should be in one repo

Description

Starting with Fedora 7 upstream no longer has the concept of Base and Extras. Mondo should update their Fedora mirrors to reflect this change as well. If everything was consolidated into a Fedora distro directory, which would include a .repo file, that would be the only thing a user would need to pull down manually before using Yum to handle the rest of the Mondo installation. This should make for a better user experience for those getting started with Mondo on Fedora.

In fact there is one repo file per fedora (and other rpm based distro) version now automatically created. e.g.: ftp://ftp.mondorescue.org/fedora/8/mondorescue.repo

Is it what you're looking for ?

I think the main thing is the rpms currently in ftp://ftp.mondorescue.org/fedora-extras/ that are required to run mondo. Would it be possible to include these in the repo?

Ok. Let me explain:

rpms currently in ftp://ftp.mondorescue.org/fedora-extras/ where provided to the Fedora upstream project in order to integrate mondo in Fedora. Cf:

https://bugzilla.redhat.com/show_bug.cgi?id=187317 https://bugzilla.redhat.com/show_bug.cgi?id=187318 https://bugzilla.redhat.com/show_bug.cgi?id=449037

But now, I'm nore working on having direct good packages, and I think I should remove that fedora-extras dir (it doesn't contain any repo file as I generated them more recently).

Hope this clarifies Fedora integration (long history, and no success up to now, when I've done gentoo in parallel with way less problems.)
