fiddyspence/yumcache — version 0.0.1 Mar 28th 2013

This module uses existing configured Yum repos to download specific packages (and optionally satisfy dependencies) and then create a local repo from the result.

Requires storeconfigs to export the Yumrepo, and you need to add the vhost config for yourself

yumcache { 'my_yumcache': }
yumcache::package { 'httpd':
  target => 'my_yumcache',
yumcache::package { 'haproxy':
  target => 'my_yumcache',
  deps   => 'false',
Yumrepo <<| tag == 'yumcache' |>>

Example Apache config:

Alias /my_yumcache "/var/opt/lib/pe-puppet/yumcache/my_yumcache"
<Directory /var/opt/lib/pe-puppet/yumcache/my_yumcache>
    AllowOverride None
    Order allow,deny
    Allow from all
