This plugin was originally designed for environments where by default, packages are consumed from an in-house Foreman/Katello or Satellite, but occasionally, the need arises to tap into additional external resources that are only reachable by proxy. Over the course of CentOS 7 and 8 and Fedora releases, the various proxy settings in
rhsm has caused a lot of grief, especially when some subsystems honor the
no_proxy environment variable and other do not.
Furthermore, this package also addresses the need to blacklist repositories that have been mirrored in-house (such as those installed with
centos-linux-release) and are subject to updates. Simply zeroing out those files and then cleaning up the
*.repo.rpmnew files is a bit unsatisfactory.
For use on CentOS 7, see yum-plugin-proxy.
