Description David Woodhouse 2006-05-06 20:08:31 EDT
For machines with crap bandwidth, or where bandwidth is limited during certain
hours, it would be good to download packages overnight. I wouldn't want to
_install_ stuff automatically each night -- that really wants to be a manual
thing. But I'm happy to run 'yum -y --downloadonly update' from cron.

Implementation attached.

implemented in a plugin and I'll go ahead and add it to yum-utils.
