Description Tomas Hoger 2010-09-24 09:12:14 EDT
Description of problem:
yum in EL5 supports options that can be used to configure SSL certificate verification for non-RHN https-accessible yum repositories - sslcacert, sslverify, sslclientcert, sslclientkey.  These options are documented in newer yum versions (such as those in EL6 and current Fedora).  It would be nice to have them, and their default values, documented in EL5 too.

Version-Release number of selected component (if applicable):
yum-3.2.22-26.el5
