Downloading source RPMs in Fedora

The main yum executable doesn’t have an option for downloading source RPMs. Fortunately, this task is made easy by yumdownloader which can be found in the yum-utils package.

yum install yum-utils
yumdownloader --source scponly

This will leave a copy of the scponly source RPM in the current directory.
