NEXUS-21311 would support non-proxy repositories, in addition to proxy repositories.
Can we support modules.yaml in standard yum, non-proxied repositories?
The use case is offline mirroring of centos 8 or rhel 8 yum repositories that support modules.yaml.
Also, the only workaround I can fathom is switching yum to a raw repository and manually uploading the repodata; which doesn't seem very feasible.
P.S. please open source the yum repository components, so the community can assist in providing solutions for these types of issues in a timely manner.
