Yum proxy repository support for RPM Packages

I am migrating from Nexus 2 to Nexus 3. In Nexus 2, we are using YUM repos in Maven format. Now since Nexus 3 supports YUM repo types, I wanted to understand how can we have all the packages created in maven format be hosted in Nexus 3 under YUM repos. Also how can I have RPMs stored in Proxy repository

This feature is not yet built in to NXRM3. See https://issues.sonatype.org/browse/NEXUS-16670.

Because NXRM2 is designed on a file system rather than blobstore it should be possible to write a script parsing through your “Maven” RPMs and uploading them to a Yum Hosted repo.

Proxies would likely be easiest to be recreated.
