About File Repositories

This is the pulp_file Plugin for Pulp Project 3.0+. This plugin replaces the ISO support in the pulp_rpm plugin for Pulp 2.


A pulp_file repository consists of a list of arbitrary files, along with a PULP_MANIFEST file. The PULP_MANIFEST consists of one line per file, each line with the format filename,sha256-checksum,size-in-bytes . Pulp creates a PULP_MANIFEST when you publish a repository.

If you are setting up a directory that you wish to make available to Pulp to synchronize, it will need to have its own PULP_MANIFEST. You can take advantage of the pulp-manifest tool to create one for you from an existing directory of files to be served.
