An example of the data contained within the .repo file for CentOS 5:

[rmmagent]

name= Advanced Monitoring Agent for Linux (CentOS_5)

type=rpm-md

baseurl=http://repos.systemmonitor.co.uk/rmmagent/CentOS_5/

gpgcheck=1

gpgkey=http://repos.systemmonitor.co.uk/rmmagent/CentOS_5/repodata/repomd.xml.key

enabled=1

Please note the primary repository is located in the UK and as such the .repo file will contain references to the *sytemmonitor.co.uk URL.

This will not affect the ability to retrieve the required files, although it is possible to amend the URLs once the .repo file has downloaded or during its manual creation. For example changing baseurl=http://repos.systemmonitor.co.uk/rmmagent/CentOS_5/ to baseurl=http://repos.systemmonitor.us/rmmagent/CentOS_5/

A repodata folder including the GPG repomd.xml.key required to authenticate the digital signature of any packages downloaded from the repository.
