Feature #303517, revision 5
Title: Configure a cronjob for refreshing repositories

openSUSE-11.1: Evaluation
Requester: Desirable
Projectmanager: Mandatory

Requested by: lslezak@xxxxxxxxxx
Partner organization:

Autorefresh configured repositories at certain times, this could be on
certain days, or time of day, etc.
A mockup and more details are in

#1: flucifredi@xxxxxxxxxx (2008-06-13 15:12:52)
there are some caveats I can think of requiring silent fail (for
instance, a laptop), or requiring randomization (not hitting NCC with a
volley all at the same time), but I think the idea is good.

+ #2: dmacvicar@xxxxxxxxxx (2008-07-07 11:13:37)
+ If you think you can make it work in a reliable way, please present a
+ concept.
+ Right now PackageKit and updater applets do refresh often before
+ checking for updates so the system repos _are_ refreshed. So I don't
+ see much value in this feature (unless a concept is presented).
