Configures various YUM components on Red Hat-like systems. Includes LWRP for managing repositories and their GPG keys.
Based on the work done by Eric Wolfe and Charles Duffy on the yumrepo cookbook. http://github.com/atomic-penguin/cookbooks/tree/yumrepo/yumrepo
RHEL, CentOS or Scientific Linux 5.x or newer. It has not been tested on other platforms or earlier versions. RHEL 6 support is untested (testing and patches are welcome).
The default recipe runs
yum update during the Compile Phase of the Chef run to ensure that the system's package cache is updated with the latest. It is recommended that this recipe appear first in a node's run list (directly or through a role) to ensure that when installing packages, Chef will be able to download the latest version available on the remote YUM repository.
Manages the configuration of the
/etc/yum.conf via attributes.
This LWRP handles importing GPG keys for YUM repositories. Keys can be imported by the
url parameter or placed in
/etc/pki/rpm-gpg/ by a recipe and then installed with the LWRP without passing the URL.

- :remove: removes the GPG key from
- key: name attribute. The name of the GPG key to install.
- url: if the key needs to be downloaded, the URL providing the download.
