    Mrepo - Legal ?


    I'm a french administrator of 50 RHEL. I want to setup Mrepo in order to create a local repository. My 50 PC can update on the local repository, and not on Internet.

    But, a question : is it legal to use mrepo regarding the red hat license ?

    Hello and welcome, Jeoffrey!

    Few if any of the members here are properly qualified to answer legal questions, so for legal issues regarding Red Hat licensing, I'd personally recommend contacting Red Hat directly, then if you disagree with them you could always consult with an attorney that specializes in licensing issues. Good luck to you with your project.

    I can be found either 40 miles west of Chicago, in Chicago, or in a galaxy far, far away.
    Here is a link to the mrepo site, managed by Dag Wieers who does a LOT of internal Linux and Red Hat support. I believe that all of his stuff, including mrepo (previously YAM - a YUM work-alike), would be released under a GPLv2 or GPLv3 license. Here is a link to the site: DAG: mrepo: Yum/Apt repository mirroring (fka yam) - ask him.
    Sometimes, real fast is almost as good as real time.
