I'm not really sure what you're talking about. *No one* will be
mirroring the hidden packages in the case we're talking about (building
EPEL in Koji), these will be RHEL binaries, and only available to the
What im talking about was the proposal put forward when we had the
meeting the proposal that we all said sounded like the way to move forward.
This is not that proposal. importing packages is the one thing that hurts
koji from getting wider use outside of fedora. Some people will import the
data. Most do not want to. Fedora will be mirroring RHEL content from RHN,
people outside of fedora will be mirroring fedora and building on top of

We have a command that can suck data about packages in to the database.
It's "koji import". The proposal is designed to work within the
framework of that we already have in Koji, to try to minimize the number
of changes and thus the time it'll take to implement.
sure koji import --repodata --url=<http|ftp|file>://<host>/path/to/repodata
The micro repository option Seth has talked about sounds
but it doesn't really help with the issue of making packages available
to Koji builders without making them available to the world.
sure it does, we have
an internal only tree thats on the phx internal
network and not available outside of phx, just as we do now.
