       reposync - synchronize yum repositories to a local directory


       reposync [options]


       reposync is used to synchronize a remote yum repository to a local directory, using yum to
       retrieve the packages.


       -h, --help
              Display a help message, and then quit.

       -c CONFIG, --config=CONFIG
              Config file to use (defaults to /etc/yum.conf).

       -a ARCH, --arch=ARCH
              Act as if running the  specified  arch  (default:  current  arch,  note:  does  not
              override $releasever).

              Also download .src.rpm files.

       -r REPOID, --repoid=REPOID
              Specify  repo  ids  to  query,  can  be  specified  multiple  times (default is all

       -t, --tempcache
              Use a temp dir for storing/accessing yum-cache.

       -p DESTDIR, --download_path=DESTDIR
              Path to download packages to: defaults to current directory.

       -g, --gpgcheck
              Remove packages that fail GPG signature checking after downloading.

       -u, --urls
              Just list urls of what would be downloaded, don't download.

       -n, --newest-only
              Download only newest packages per-repo.

       -q, --quiet
              Output as little information as possible.

              Allow packages stored outside  their  repo  directory  to  be  synced.   These  are
              packages  that  are referenced in metadata by using absolute paths or up-level ".."
              symbols, and are normally skipped by reposync for security reasons.

              CAUTION: Using this option has potential security implications since, by  providing
              malicious repodata, an attacker could make reposync write to arbitrary locations on
              the file system that are accessible by the user running it.


       Sync all packages from the 'updates' repo to the current directory:
               reposync --repoid=updates

       Sync only the newest packages from the 'updates' repo to the current directory:
               reposync -n --repoid=updates

       Sync packages from the 'updates' and 'extras' repos to the current directory:
               reposync --repoid=updates --repoid=extras

       Sync all packages from the 'updates' repo to the repos directory:
               reposync -p repos --repoid=updates


       reposync  uses  the  yum  libraries  for  retrieving  information  and  packages.  If   no
       configuration file is specified, the default yum configuration will be used.
