repomonitor / README.rst

VectorLinux repo monitor daemon

This is a Twisted/INotify daemon for listening to changes in the repository filesystem tree. Repository metadata needs to be updated each time a change is made in a package. With the repository monitor we can automate these tasks.


$ python install


The install rutine will put service scripts in /etc/rc.d/rc.repomonitor

$ /etc/rc.d/rc.repomonitor {start|stop|restart}

The repository location is read from the VL_REPOSITORY_ROOT environment variable, which should be an absolute path.


We use Twisted's Trial module for tests, from the source top directory run

$ trial repomonitor
