I'm playing around with Fedora for some clients who're using it, and being that I usually use SuSE (where I've been pretty bad about it by only using the GUI under Yast) or Ubuntu (apt-get), I'm a little sketchy on the whole yum thing, and where to get sources.
Don't get me wrong, since I installed RPM fusion, it works great, by and large, but I was wondering where/how to add other
repositories and even if there are any.
I found an interesting tutorial wherein it stated you can wget a .repo file to a directory, and it'll add it, which seems nice, and makes a lot of sense, but beyond that (and after 2 days of googling on and off in my spare time) I can't seem to find anyplace that HAS .repo files.
I'd like to add a couple mirrors (JAIST and HEAnet come to mind when I'm working with Debian, Mint or Ubuntu. Or SuSE, come to think of it).
I've found that there's some sort of tool where people are building their own "repositories" of their collected packages, but I was sort of hoping to add a couple highly comprehensive mirrors and to be done with it.
Again, there's very little I haven't been able to simply "Yum install xyz" or find or build from source. The real reason I'm asking is so that I understand the package management system, and Fedora's repository schema better than I currently do.
