I tried to create a toddler, but that setup is too complicated for me.
Especially if something is not working it will be almost impossible for
me to debug it if it is running somewhere I cannot reach via SSH.
I just tried to build the generate-mirrorlist-cache on RHEL 7 (using
Rust from EPEL) and it works fine. Instead of 20 minutes it needs 30
seconds to generate the mirrorlist cache file on mm-backend01.
Although a RPM is available in Fedora I am not sure the RPM can be made
available in EPEL 7.
RPM Fusion is using the Rust based generate-mirrorlist-cache for some
months already and I do not see any problems with it.
We are not wanting to deploy new EL7 systems but would probably install an
EL8 box for this. Does this change the need for moving to Fedora on it?
I would like to use this also for Fedora and a dedicated Fedora based
or building from source on RHEL 7 is both possible. Building from source
does not sound like something used in Fedora Infrastructure so setting
up a Fedora based VM would be necessary. Would that be possible?
