building plugin that simulates repository...



Hi,

I'm trying to build a plugin that would dynamically "inject" local 
"repositories" (which are nothing more than collections of RPM files) but I 
keep on bumping into problems. Latest one is:

File "/usr/lib/python2.4/site-packages/yum/packages.py", line 1145, in 
__getattr__
    return self.hdr[thing]
KeyError: 'unknown header tag'

What I'm trying to do is bridge CPacMan and Yum via plugin. CPacMan has it's 
own concept of "repos" which could be local caches of Yum repos or just 
directories with RPMs etc. What I want to do with this plugin is to wrap some 
of those repos CPacMan has (based on certain criteria) and present them to Yum 
as valid repos making operations of package install much more seamless etc. I 
didn't want to create 1:1 relationship between CPacMan repo and Yum repo, I 
also realize that is something that RedHat is already doing with RHN plugin. 
However instead of trying to cut through the RH code I'd like to get some 
clean sample of plugin generating dynamic repo "in-memory" rather than what 
one of the examples shows - creating temp repo definition and pointing it to 
the directory subsequently doing "createrepo" on it. 

I'm attaching my (oversimplified) attempt of doing so, hoping that somebody 
can point me at missing bits and pieces (or maybe point me in the right 
direction?). I intentionally removed most of the CPacMan logic to make it more 
yum-specific excercise (full, and "ugly" version of it is here: 
http://cpacman.svn.sourceforge.net/viewvc/cpacman/cpacman-
yum/trunk/cpacman_yum.py?revision=238&view=markup )

Any help is highly appreciated.
