#8057 Add EPEL8 and EPEL8-playground to mirrormanager
Closed: Fixed 6 months ago by smooge. Opened 7 months ago by smooge.

EPEL-8 is reaching the point where it can show up on the download servers. We need to set it up in mirrormanager as a release similar to previous releases. There will be 1 additional target for epel8-playground which will need coordination with @mohanboddu

Can we meet sometime to go over what is needed ?

Of course, but usually MirrorManager just auto-detects new releases. There is probably not much to do. The repositories have to appear on the master server and MirrorManager will detect them. As a new EPEL version is not happening very often, the last one was still with the old MirrorManager code base, not sure if it will work without errors.

Easiest thing to do would be to create empty repositories at the EPEL-8 location and so that MirrorManager can detect the directory structure which should be enough.

If epel8-playground will be a separate directory tree in parallel to pub/epel/8 it might need some tweaks to MirrorManager to detect it.

Just saw that EPEL-8 is already working:

$ curl -s 'https://mirrors.fedoraproject.org/metalink?repo=epel-8&arch=x86_64&' | wc -l

Not really anything to do anymore.

Cool. That explains people getting this already.
