[Server-devel] Layout for the yum repo

Hi Dennis,

I am working on preparing the "xs-0.3" milestone, has some relatively
simple changes (so far) and I am wondering how the repo layout should
be setup. What I want to do is to

 - Build the LiveCD preconfigured to look at 2 repos, or branches in
the existing repo:
   -- a pristine F7 branch in the repo that holds all the F7 RPMs
   -- an "XS packages" branch

 - For the xs packages branch, is should be looking at the "0.3"
branch. I may make "0.3.x" images with updated RPMs.

Does that make sense? Our repo right now doesn't seem to be geared for
this, but I am a bit lost as to the best way of reconfiguring it. What
should we do?

We don't have many (any?) legacy users in production that we need to
support with updates (yet). With 0.3 I'll start supporting users more
explicitly. In the meantime, we have a bit of freedom...
