I am creating a private Fedora Linux mirror (os & updates repositories of RPMS and DRPMS). Of course, I'm doing that using rsync and everything is working well... except that I'm using a very slow 256kbit/s connection and downloads take ages.
As the updates repository contains both RPMS and DRPMS, I was wondering whether it is possible to:
(1) only rsync the DRPMS
(2) build the RPMS locally
Anyone has done something similar?
I've found a page explaining how to create DRPMs as well as build RPMs from DRPMs. I'm investigating if this can be used.
Anyone has a document from Fedora which explains their policy concerning DRPMs e.g. from what RPMs are DRPMs created? Is it the original version found on the DVD or the previous version found in the updates repository?
