In some cases RPM's in Fedora need to be rebuilt for the Infrastructure team to suit our needs.  This repo is provided to the public (except for the RHEL RPMs).  Rebuilds go into this repo which are stored on the netapp and shared via the proxy servers.

Location: PHX http://infrastructure.fedoraproject.org/
 
 
Servers: puppet1 / Proxy Servers
 
 
Purpose: Provides infrastructure repo for custom Fedora Infrastructure Rebuilds
 
 
== Building an RPM ==
 
 
Building an RPM for Infrastructure is significantly easier then building an RPM for Fedora.  Basically get your SRPM ready, then submit it to koji for building.  Do a koji build --scratch.
 
 
{{Admon/note | Remember to build it for every dist / arch you need to deploy it on.}}
 
 
== Signing the RPM ==
 
 
=== Requesting Access ===
 
 
Infrastructure RPM's are signed by the Infrastructure key: http://infrastructure.fedoraproject.org/RPM-GPG-KEY-INFRASTRUCTURE Access to this key is restricted.  If you feel you need it email KevinFenzi with a request for access (if Kevin isn't around some of the other Infrastructure people also have access like ToshioKuratomi, MikeMcgrath, SethVidal, You'll only need to ask for the key once.  It has a password which will be given to you as well.
 
 
=== Signing the RPM ===
 
 
Once your key has been set up, you can sign the RPMs with:
 
 
<pre>
 
rpm --resign your-package-1.1.rpm
 
</pre>
 
 
== Re-creating the repo ==
 
 
All of the repositories are located at:
 
 
<pre>
 
puppet1:/mnt/fedora/app/fi-repo/el/%{dist}/%{arch}/
 
</pre>
 
 
Simply copy your rpm to the proper dist/arch/  then run create repo from that directory.
 
 
{{Admon/note |  Don't forget to sign and deploy your SRPM!}}
 
 
This is an example of copying and creating a repo for myPack-1.0.noarch.rpm
 
 
<pre>
 
cd /mnt/fedora/app/fi-repo/el/5/
 
cp ~/rpms/RPMS/myPack-1.0.noarch.rpm ./i386/
 
createrepo -d --update ./
 
</pre>
 
 
Easy as that.
 
 
== Add information about why the package is in the repo ==
 
 
We would like to keep track of why packages are in the infrastructure repo and who is the person who added them.
 
 
When adding a new package, please add information about it here:
 
 
Date / PackageName / Owner / Reason
 
 
2011-03-31 /  drupal6-fedora-insight-theme / pfrields / Fedora based theme for insight. Can't be used by other projects.
 
2011-05-10 / gitolite / jkeating / gitolite package for pkgs01. Needed for new branch scheme.
 
 
== RHEL repo ==
 
 
In addition to the Infrastructure repo, there is a RHEL5 repo that all machines update from, accessible only to our machine's IPs.  This repo syncs again RHN daily at 1:30 UTC.  To manually resync the RHEL repo against RHN, run the following on as root on puppet1:
 
 
<pre>
 
rm -rf /var/tmp/rhnsync-cache # Clear cached metadata
 
/mnt/fedora/app/fi-repo/rhel/do-rhel-sync
 
</pre>
