Handle variables in repo files similar to yum

Feature state



Yum expands a set of variables in the repo files such as

  • releasever (extracted from the release file)
  • basearch

Which allows usage of the same repo files for multiple version and architectures.

User benefit:

Adding such support will allow better portability of repo files between yum and zypper and felxibility managing repos and repo files.

Anas, did you really tried using $distver and $basearch in your repo files? This is already implemented.

Ok, it seems libzypp looks for redhat-release (distroverpkg), but that seems to be hardcoded? Is there away to change this in the config file?
