Random thoughts, usually on Fedora

Yummy!

Yum has been going through with various changes like performance improvements like C based metadata parser, plugins that skip packages with dependency issues and one that enables the ability to downgrade packages and and now finally the fix for ^C actually quitting the application instead of just switching to a different mirror which is a bug that I reported ages ago.

  1. More infos!

    Thnaks very much for the info – I think it is very sad though that this is the first “official” news about the yum development. There is no page where current development or the changelog is listed – even the yum wiki is empty in this regard.

    So, please, add more information, I cannot believe that the version change from 2.6 to 2.9.5 comes only from these three improvements.

      There is a LOT of other changes going on. I just mentioned a couple that interested me personally. For example, a update notification similar to RHN applet is available in Fedora development tree. There is also a number of API changes

      For more information

      Changelog: http://devel.linux.duke.edu/cgi-bin/viewcvs.cgi/yum/ChangeLog
      Development list: https://lists.dulug.duke.edu/pipermail/yum-devel/

        Thx for the info, but to be honest:
        The problem for me was that there are too less information prepared for the average user. Sure, I can go through the detailed changelog, the complete devel mail list and even through the cvs/svn history – but that is not user friendly, and takes ages of time. Plus, you need a bit of knowledge about the inner structures of the project, how the people communicate, some programming knowledge to actually see what is meant, and so on.

        You other, second, post, was what I expected. It would be really cool if the yum people would step in front a bit and present at least with some words (only a paragraph, like you did it this time) regularly after big updates what exactly has changed – in a way the average user can understand.

        It’s hard to say, but almost all projects I know do this, and yum is one of the biggest exceptions:/

        I can easily do this for all big changes in Yum, if you find it useful. No big deal.
