From Bugzilla Helper:
User-Agent: Opera/8.0 (X11; Linux i686; U; en)

Description of problem:
$ sudo yum clean all
Cleaning up Everything
0 headers removed
0 packages removed
0 metadata files removed
0 cache files removed
0 cache files removed

$ du -sch /var/cache/yum/*
14M     /var/cache/yum/base
4.9M    /var/cache/yum/dag
296M    /var/cache/yum/development
116K    /var/cache/yum/extras
402M    /var/cache/yum/extras-stable
171M    /var/cache/yum/extras-testing

100K    /var/cache/yum/updates-released
35M     /var/cache/yum/updates-testing
1.4G    total

This looks to me like 1.4GB (!) of wasted space an my "getting full" hard drive.  Everything I want to install with 
yum has already been installed.  Why is yum saving 1.4GB of headers and packages after "yum clean all".  This 
looks like a bug to me.

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

How reproducible:

Steps to Reproduce:
1.yum clean all

Actual Results:  $du -sch /var/cache/yum/*
1.4G    total

Expected Results:  remove all headers, packages, metadata, and cached files from /var/cache/yum.

Additional info:

Say whether or not there is any substantive, valid reason not to simply do "rm -R /var/cache/yum/*".
