In thetab, you can see the list of all available package repositories for SMT. For each repository, the list shows the repository's name, target product and architecture, mirroring and staging flag, date of last mirroring, and a short description. You can sort the list by clicking on the relevant column's header, and scroll the list items using the scrollbars on the window's right side.
You can also filter out groups of repositories with thedrop-down list in the upper left part of the window. The filter list items are collected and assembled dynamically from the first word of the repositories' names. If you use a filter to limit the number of displayed repositories, you can always go back and view all of them by selecting from the drop-down list. You can also use more than one filter in sequence.
Before you can start to offer package repositories, you need to create a local mirror of their packages. To do this, follow the procedure:
From the list, select the line containing the name of the repository you want to mirror.
Click on the selected line highlighting it.
Click on thebutton in the lower left part of the window. In the column of the selected repository, a check mark appears. If the repository was already selected for mirroring before, the check mark will disappear, and the repository will not be mirrored anymore.
Hit thebutton and the repository will be mirrored immediately.
A pop-up window appears with the information about mirroring status and result.
Click OK and the original window with the list of repositories will be refreshed.
