I'd like to automate receiving updates for the Atlassian products we are currently using (JIRA, Crowd, etc) and was wondering if there is an official YUM repository we could mirror, or perhaps an "newest version" RPM I could wget from a script. Is any such sort of automation possible or am I stuck with downloading a tar file that may change location?

No there is no offical YUM repo, or even RPM's of Atlassian products.
But there is nothing stopping you from creating RPM's for installing atlassian products and setting up a local yum repo and host it internaly with a webserver.
Though upgrading atlassian tools is kind of complex, not many people would want to leave it to the chance of a "yum update"
Yeah. In the absence of that I'm wondering if there is a stable link that I could wget and rebuild on a regular basis. What got me on this train of thought was I installed 2.2.4 last week and checking this week I found a 2.2.7 ... would like to automate my RPM builds for our upcoming YUM repo automagically.
May take some babysitting on the script side but it's worth the time saved when we have to create multiple new VMs with the Atlassian products.
Thanks for the reply.
Another way to automate the process could be using Puppet (www.puppetlabs.com). Puppet is very useful to automate tasks and create a standard for your network. You could create a script to download the .tar files and create the .rpm files by rpmbuild. After this, you could create your own repository for the Atlassian products. The advantage using puppet, is that you could manager many other things about your network, not just scripts. Also, you can use Maven as quoted before.
If you spend enough time as a Jira admin - whether you are managing a single, mid-sized instance, a large enterprise one or juggling multiple instances at once - you will eventually find yourself in ...
