Create YUM Repoistory with signed GPG keys

Description

Reading the documentation I managed to find the Installation RPM (stored on AWS - http://kylo.readthedocs.io/en/latest/release-notes/ReleaseNotes8.html), but I am surprised to see no download link or repo settings on the main website.

I suggest the following:

  • RPM/deb and public repoistories should be made available on the Kylo website.

  • Packages should be signed with appropriate GPG keys

  • The build pipeline for Kylo (assuming there is one) should automatically build and sign the packages and rebuild the repos (nightly or per release).

  • Look to get Kylo in repositories such as EPEL.

What benefits does this provide?

  • Make it easier for $customer to download Kylo

  • Make it easier for customer to download Kylo (with trust) and distribute it within their systems.

  • Make it easier to patch/upgrade Kylo

  • Repos allow for simple integration with software such as Pulp, Foreman and Red Hat Satellite 6.

I've created a document on the internal wiki which has the steps required to do this, look under system engineering.
