Description Gerald Britton 2004-01-18 16:56:40 EST
From Bugzilla Helper:
User-Agent: Mozilla/5.0 (X11; U; Linux i686; en-US; rv:1.7a)

Description of problem:
yum should have a mechanism for the user to query packages
with arbitrary query formats.  Possibly with several builtins
for looking at the filelist/scripts/changelog of an uninstalled
package.  Simply calling print hdr.sprintf("query format") seems
to work within yum.

Additionally, it should allow specific querying by
name-version-release which currently does not work.

Version-Release number of selected component (if applicable):

How reproducible:

Steps to Reproduce:
