YUM and APT repositories for Agent Packages

There should be a YUM and APT repository serving the Log Insight Agent.

 

The repository should be hosted on vmware.com somewhere (e.g., https://packages.vmware.com/tools/esx/latest/index.html alongside VMware Tools) and on the Log Insight Server. An administrator or configuration management tool should be able to add this repository to the OS's native package management.

 

Provide documentation for running `rpm --import` or `apt-key add -` followed by writing to `/etc/yum.repos.d/` or `/etc/apt/sources.list.d/`

 

Subsequently, we should be able to install or upgrade the Log Insight Agent package with zypper, yum, apt-get, aptitude or any of each platform's GUI or auto-update features, either during automated composition/deployment or over a longer lifecycle.
