RPM Repository Snapshots
For reliable continuous development, the OSBuild project employs its own RPM repository snapshots. These snapshots are persistent and immutable. They are meant to be used by test farms, CI systems, and other development tools, in case the official RPM repositories are not suitable.
WARNING: These snapshots are not meant for production use! No guarantee of safety, applicability, or fitness for a particular purpose is made. No security fixes are applied to the repositories!
An enumeration of all available snapshots can be retrieved via:
$ curl https://rpmrepo.osbuild.org/control/snapshots | jq .
The following table lists the repositories that are snapshotted, as well as the availability guarantees, and the different variants.
|RHEL||8.2||aarch64, ppc64le, s390x, x86_64||6 months|
|RHEL||8.3||aarch64, ppc64le, s390x, x86_64||6 months|
|RHEL||8.4||aarch64, ppc64le, s390x, x86_64||6 months|
We provide an RPM repository for every snapshot, accessible via
rpmrepo.osbuild.org. The Base URL for a given snapshot is:
The parameters are:
|<storage>||anon, auth, psi||anon|
|<platform>||f<num>, el<num>||f33, el8|
The storage key selects the actual data store. Available storage includes anon for the anonymous storage, auth for data that requires authentication, psi for data on Red Hat private infrastructure. The platform key groups the data by platform, required for data lifetime management. The snapshot key selects the individual snapshot.
Note that not all data is available on all storage locations and platforms. If you select the wrong combination, you will get 404 replies. As a general rule, you should select the platform based on the snapshot name (e.g., for the snapshot f33-x86_64-devel-20201010 you should use f33 as platform). As storage selector, you should use anon for all publicly available data, psi for Red Hat internal data, and auth if you have gotten authentication credentials.
By default, all snapshots are publicly available, unless they contain confidential or proprietary data. If you decide to use these snapshots, please contact the OSBuild Developers and give us a short notice, so we can track the users and communicate upcoming changes:
