The packages you will find in the Bright repositories have gone through a QA process. Updated packages are released roughly every 3-4 weeks for the latest version of Bright. Older versions of Bright will receive updates less frequently.
It may be desirable to have access to the latest version of a package, before it has gone through a QA process. This is possible because Bright makes nightly package builds available for versions 8.2 and higher. Please keep in mind: these packages have not been tested and may cause issues.
The repository requires authentication. You may obtain authentication information by submitting a ticket requesting access to Bright nightly builds. Once you have obtained credentials, you can configure the nightly repositories as described below.

baseurl setting will have to be tweaked to match the Bright version as well as the Linux distribution version.
It is strongly recommended to leave the
enabledsetting set to 0, and only enable the repository from the command line when needed. To verify that the repository has been correctly configured:
[root@demo4 ~]# yum repolist --disablerepo=* --enablerepo=cm-ml-nightly --enablerepo=cm-nightly Loaded plugins: fastestmirror, priorities Loading mirror speeds from cached hostfile repo id repo name status cm-ml-nightly Cluster Manager Machine Learning Nightly Updates 272 cm-nightly Cluster Manager Nightly Updates 2512+65 repolist: 2784 [root@demo4 ~]# yum list --disablerepo=* --enablerepo=cm-ml-nightly --enablerepo=cm-nightly ...
To update a package (for example cmdaemon) from the nightly repositories:
yum update cmdaemon --disablerepo=* --enablerepo=cm-nightly --enablerepo=cm-ml-nightly
If necessary the
--disablerepo=* flag may be omitted (for example to be able to pull in package dependencies from other repositories).
