if i can use "yum install" to install specific version of package then i should be able to use "pulp-admin", if i want to use "yum install" why i would use PULP at all? :)

i can simply create repos using "createrepo" and bind them using scripts and use "yum install" ...

yum clean is bit odd .. every time i upload package to repository i have to run yum clean on client to be able to make that package visibile in yum ..

 I don't believe Pulp supports this type of
 remote command. I do believe that eventually the metadata
 will become so old that Yum will decide to refetch the
 metadata. This will have a similar effect to what "yum
 clean all" in that it throws away the old metadata and
 fetches it new. The pulp-admin commands don't have a way
 to force consumers to perform a "yum clean all"
 that I know of.

 There is a way to do this with yum
 directly. See the example [0]. The "automatically fetch
 the latest" is a Yum behavior so you can use Yum on the
 consumers directly to change which version gets installed if
 you don't want the latest of a given package. Pulp does
 not provide a way for you to specify this behavior through
 Pulp. You should use yum directly for this.
