Downloading source rpms


Using yum installs the binary version of the software. Is it possible to use yum to download the src rpms , because i have seen one repo called Fedora src. I am using Fedora 11.

I use yum to install things and for downloading stuff i use wget
you have the possibility of using these 2 commands, so why should you use yum to download rpms? i thought it could be done with wget...

just do a search for the right rpm on the internet , copy-paste the URL (right-click in your cmd), press enter, see the magic happening, done!

All the Fedora 11 release SRC.RPMS
http://download.fedora.redhat.com/pu.../source/SRPMS/
Updates http://download.fedora.redhat.com/pu...ates/11/SRPMS/

Later package versions, e.g. Fedora 14 SRC.RPMS
http://download.fedora.redhat.com/pu.../source/SRPMS/

# yum install yum-utils ( Will provide yumdownloader ).

# yumdownloader --source <packagename>
