repoman.common package


repoman.common.artifact module

This module holds the helper classes to represent an artifact list:

└── $name
    └── $version
        ├── $name-$version.$extension
        └── $name-$version.$extension.sig

This module has the classess that manage a set of artifacts, in a hierarchical fashion, in the order:

name 1-* version 1-* inode 1-* artifact-instance

So that translated to classes, with the first being the placeholder for the whole data structure, is:

ArtifactList 1-* ArtifactName 1-* ArtifactVersion \
1-* ArtifactInode 1-* Artifact

All except the Artifact class are implemented as subclasses of the python dict, so as key-value stores.

For clarification, here’s a dictionary like diagram:

    name1: ArtifactName{
        version1: ArtifactVersion{
            inode1: ArtifactInode[Artifact, Artifact, ...]
            inode2: ArtifactInode[...]
        version2: ArtifactVersion{...}
    name2: ArtifactName{...}

NOTE:You have to implement at least the Artifact class

class repoman.common.artifact.Artifact(path, temp_dir='/tmp', verify_ssl=True)[source]

Bases: object


This string uniquely identifies a artifact file, if two have the same string representation, the must point to the same file or a copy of it, if not, you wrongly generated two artifact with the same version/name and different content


Unique Artifact Name.

This property should uniquely identify an artifact entity, in the sense that if you have two artifacts with the same full_name they must package the same content or one of them is wrongly generated (the version was not bumped or something).


Returns the theoretical path that the artifact should be, instead of the current path it is.


Lazy md5 calculation.

sign(key_path, passwd)[source]

Defines how to sign this artifact, by default with detached signature

class repoman.common.artifact.ArtifactInode(inode)[source]

  • art_version (str) – Version to remove


get_artifacts(regmatch=None, fmatch=None, latest=0)[source]

The resolution order is:
custom_config(current_section -> main_section) -> default_config(current_section -> main_section)

repoman.common.parser module

When specifying a source for an artifact, you have to do it in this format:


For each source, it will be expanded, and filtered. An example:

class repoman.common.parser.Parser(config, stores)[source]

Bases: object


Parses the given source sting and returns a list of resolved artifact paths

Parameters:full_source_str (Sting) – Source sting to parse
Return type:list of strings

repoman.common.repo module

This module holds the class and methods to manage a repository.

In our case a repository is not just a yum repository but a set of them and another files, in the following structure:

├── store1_dir
│   └── ...
└── store2_dir
    └── ...
class repoman.common.repo.Repo(path, config)[source]

Bases: object

Represents the repository sctructure, it does not require that the repo has the structure specified in the module doc when loading it, but when adding new rpms or generating the sources it will create the new files in that directory structure.

Configuration options:

  • allowed_repo_paths
    Comma separated list of paths where repositories can be found/created

Adds an extra subdir to the curret path

Parameters:dirname (str) – Name of the extra dir to add

Adds a suffix to the repo’s path

Parameters:suffix (str) – Suffix to postpend to the repo’s path

Generic function to add an artifact to the repo.

Some base (meta-)sources are supported, like:

  • conf:path/to/file: This will include all the sources defined in
    the file path/to/file, it supports shell comments in the file, and empty lines
  • stdin: This will read any sources passd through stdin, with the
    same format as conf: files (cat sources | repoman myrepo add stdin is the same as repoman myrepo add conf:sources)
  • repo-suffix:suffix_string: This allows you to define a suffix
    string for the destination repo, it’s helpful to allow generating custom repos from a base one, when the repoman command is hardcoded (with the combination of stdin source)
  • repo-extra-dir:dirname: This allows you to define an extra subdir
    string for the destination repo, it’s helpful to allow generating custom repos from a base one, when the repoman command is hardcoded (with the combination of stdin source).
Parameters:artifact_source – source string of the artifact to add
delete_old(*args, **kwargs)[source]

Remove any old versions but the latest num_to_keep

  • num_to_keep – Number of versions to keef for each artifact
  • noop – if True will not actually remove anything

Actually load all the stores and load the contents of the repo


Given a iterable of sources, add all that apply, skipping comments and empty lines

Parameters:source_stream – iterable with the sources, can be an open file object as returned by open

Changes the root path of the repo

Parameters:new_path (str) – New path to root the repo to
save(*args, **kwargs)[source]

Realize all the changes made so far
