SCLo repositories version lock #5689

The CentOS mirror infrastructure now allows to implement the version number lock for SCLo repositories. We can enhance the locked software origin policy to retrieve SCLo packages from a specific CentOS release (i.e. 7.6.1810).

Proposed solution

We have to change the YUM mirrorlist links and repo name references inside

  • nethserver-base
  • nethserver-release
  • mirrorlist
  • nethserver-upgrade-tool

Alternative solutions

Continue to point SCLo repositories to the latest "7" CentOS release. However this has serious limitations. For instance when a package is removed from the next CentOS release (e.g. php56).

Get latest release from (#2)
By not requesting a specific nsrelease number mirrorlist gives back the
URLs for the latest stable release.

Furthermore, require use the "locked software origin" mirror list to
access the CentOS project repositories. Only EPEL (with owncloud
exclusion) remains without "locked policy".
