NAME         top

       repodiff - list differences between two or more Yum repositories

SYNOPSIS         top

       repodiff --old=old_repo_baseurl --new=new_repo_baseurl

DESCRIPTION         top

       repodiff is a program which will list differences between two sets of
       repositories.  Note that by default only source packages are


       --old, -o
              Add a repo. as an old repo. Note that if you prefix the url
              with "mirror:" then the following url is treated as a mirror
              and not a baseurl.

       --new, -n
              Add a repo. as an new repo. Note that if you prefix the url
              with "mirror:" then the following url is treated as a mirror
              and not a baseurl.

       --archlist, -a
              Add architectures to change the default from just comparing
              source packages.  Note that if you want the same as a native
              "x86_64" architecture machine you just need to pass "x86_64"
              (this is different from earlier versions where you needed to
              specify "x86_64,athlon,i686,i586,i486,i386,noarch" and you
              still got "src").

       --size, -s
              Output additional data about the size of the changes.

              Normally packages are just compared based on their name, this
              flag makes the comparison also use the arch. So foo.i386 and
              foo.x86_64 are different.

              Output a simple one line message for modified packages.

              Split the data for modified packages between upgraded and
              downgraded packages.

EXAMPLES         top

       Compare source pkgs in two local repos:
              repodiff --old=/tmp/repo-old --new=/tmp/repo-new

       Compare x86_64 compat. binary pkgs in two remote repos, and two local
              repodiff -a x86_64 --old=
              --old=/tmp/repo-old --new=

       Compare x86_64 compat. binary pkgs, but also compare arch:
              repodiff -a x86_64 --compare-arch
              --old= --old=/tmp/repo-old
              --new= --new=/tmp/repo-new

       Compare two releases of Fedora (15 => 16):
              source-16&arch=i386' --size --simple --downgrade

       There are of course no bugs, but should you find any, you should
