Description Craig Schlenter 2007-09-04 09:46:33 EDT
Yum is downloading metadata when it shouldn't have to - surely it can't need metadata when I am asking it to clean everything? Yum version is 3.2.4 btw. root@linux~]# yum clean all Loading "changelog" plugin development 100% |=========================| 2.1 kB 00:08 primary.sqlite.bz2 100% |=========================| 5.1 MB 05:12 Cleaning up Everything Thanks!

My bug writes also something about a filtering these unnecessary downloads for yum update or yum install: May be yum can detect this after downloading 2-3 files and re-download repomd.xml from same server as primary.sqlite file. Is it possible to implement something like this?
Comment 5 Seth Vidal 2007-09-10 09:49:00 EDT
install/update downloads of metadata is another thing that is hard to address right now. If you're talking about a stale repomd.xml file then some of that is supposed to be handled by mirrormanager.
