As a Pulp user, I want an end-to-end tutorial with all the steps to get an RPM into Pulp
Ticket moved to GitHub: "pulp/pulp_rpm/2288":https://github.com/pulp/pulp_rpm/issues/2288
I have community feedback from the survey and elsewhere from over five users asking for end-to-end tutorial style RPM docs. From what I've seen of our Pulp community matrix channel, the beginner steps of the post-installation scenario seems to be a challenge.
Perhaps this would be a good opportunity to create some RPM documentation using the Pulp 3 CLI also. Here is a collection of some of the comments.
Digging through the REST API docs and the challenge of figuring out an end-to-end "here's how you get an RPM into Pulp" (or deb or file) was quite a slog.
" RPM( or in general plugin) docs do not have end to end steps for "how do I make a new RPM repository"
" Lack of tutorial style docs, for example: how to mirror Centos."
This is related to https://pulp.plan.io/issues/9259 , "workflow-docs should use pulp-cli instead of httpie" , which I am working on right now.
Part of that process has been providing pulp-cli versions of the workflow-scripts described at https://docs.pulpproject.org/pulp_rpm/workflows/scripting.html . For the "get an RPM into pulp", this existing script:
walks through the entire process, including creating a Package and an Advisory and adding them to Pulp and then to a Repository.
docs_check_* bash-scripts in the
_scripts directory don't remove the need for the work/tutorials described in this issue. But they are a place for users to look, for examples of how-to do things!
