Description Scott R. Godin 2004-06-23 12:16:37 EDT
From Bugzilla Helper:
User-Agent: Mozilla/5.0 (X11; U; Linux i686; en-US; rv:1.6)

Description of problem:
yum should have available a download-only option similar to how
up2date will allow you to download but not install a package.

In addition, it would be nice to have a download-src option to instead
get the src.rpm; if such a thing is possible, such functionality could
potentially be added at the same time.

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

How reproducible:

Steps to Reproduce:
1. attempt to download-but-not-install a package via yum
2. attempt to grab the src rpms via yum

yum has one.

yum --help

I believe it's been in there since yum 2.0.6

the source downloading is outside of the scope of yum 2.0.X.

it may be included in a future version.

ahh if it's in a version later than that supplied to Fedora Core 1,
then I wouldn't have seen it yet. Guess I should look around and grab
the latest.
