Infrastructure Yum Repo SOP
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.
Owner: Fedora Infrastructure Team
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.
Signing the RPM
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:
rpm --resign your-package-1.1.rpm
Re-creating the repo
All of the repositories are located at:
Simply copy your rpm to the proper dist/arch/ then run create repo from that directory.
This is an example of copying and creating a repo for myPack-1.0.noarch.rpm
cd /mnt/fedora/app/fi-repo/el/5/ cp ~/rpms/RPMS/myPack-1.0.noarch.rpm ./i386/ createrepo -d --update ./
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.
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:
rm -rf /var/tmp/rhnsync-cache # Clear cached metadata /mnt/fedora/app/fi-repo/rhel/do-rhel-sync
