Default cobbler reposync proxy issues

Hi,

I'm currently using cobbler 0.8.2 from EPEL on RHEL5-x86_64.
It seems cobbler reposync does not respect proxy entries
in /etc/yum.conf. Is this expected ?

I've temporarily worked around this by adding a file that sets
the http_proxy and ftp_proxy environment variables system-wide
in /etc/profile.d/

Cobbler reposync uses either yum's reposync (http/ftp) or rsync
(rsync://, ssh) to do mirroring. Either way, those calls /are/ passed
through the shell, so environment variables are passed along -- so your
solution is fine.


If you think yum's reposync is not reading import settings in
/etc/yum.conf, that bug needs to be opened against yum-utils.
