If it was my project : archlinux using yaourt and each needed package
compiled in a VM

I work at a company as sysadmin and proxy aren't in my side (network
So if i can configure a repository or sync a repository with the response :
go head it will be here for years.., if not i have to deal with distrib
package :P

Even in a VM i prefered a debian server than a RHEL
By the way the good thing it's not a AIX proxy ;)

Hash: SHA256

I do not understand the love of archaeological fossils. It repositories
such junk lying around? :-D
