HI All,

I think good idea to create repository for my own application.
So next time user only add repository for my own application and just type

"yum install myapplication"

And everything working well.
This is really good idea.

Any reference for create a repository as you said for my own application ?

My consideration also about internet connection as Own said.One of
advantage of using ISO is user can use my own application without internet
connection becauase all of them are bunlded on ISO.
