As of 3.5 NXRM3 has support for Yum proxy repositories. Support for hosted and group repositories are at the top of our priority list. If there's anything you'd like to see specific to a revamped YUM hosted solution, feel free to let us know by commenting on the JIRA ticket requesting support.
We aim to provide support for every format available. However, we also have to prioritize according to the needs of our customers. If you want to see OBR supported, check out the Nexus Repository Manager JIRA project and add a comment with your support.
Like OBR, we plan to support P2, and really any format. However, because we prioritize based on feedback from our users, this one’s a little further down the list. If you want to see P2 supported, check out the Nexus Repository Manager Public JIRA project and add a comment with your support.
The good news is that YUM is on our roadmap. However, it’s also not at the top of our priority list. We listen to users just like you, though, so if YUM support is the only thing standing between you and greatness, let us know by commenting on the JIRA ticket requesting support.
The rumors of a REST-less Nexus Repository Manager aren’t completely accurate. In fact, our new Provisioning API powered by Groovy scripts provide a better mechanism for achieving the most common use case for REST -- automated provisioning of a system and/or onboarding new projects. However, we are planning to deliver REST endpoints in 2017, beginning with the most frequently requested use cases. Let us know what you are looking for via our public JIRA project.
