RPM repository for storing OST VM images


I'm working on a PoC that uses RPMs to distribute VM images used in OST.
This would vastly shorten the running time of suites.

For my setup I would need an RPM repository that could hold ~10GB for now, and somewhere in terms of tens of gigabytes later. This repository should be readable and writable by CI jobs. For now I would also need to be able to access it (rw) outside of CI environment with sshfs or something else. Something like https://templates.ovirt.org/repo/ would be perfect. Would that be possible?

Thanks, I’ve added your user so you can try SSH’ing as msobczyk@templates.ovirt.org - once that works I’ll create a new directory for the yum repo and give your user permissions

I confirm that ssh access is working for me

great, thanks for trying it out!


I’ve attached a new partition to /var/www/html/yum and made your user the owner. You can create repo directories there and populate them with packages and we can later also make Jenkins push files directly to this directory.

Just tried it out - everything works. I think I have all I needed for now. Thank you very much!

Closing the ticket, once we want to automate publishing to the template server let's open a new one.

For reference, the new partition is 60GB ins isze and exposed as https://templates.ovirt.org/yum/
