Description Dennis Gregorovic 2006-06-08 23:36:16 UTC
Currently, pkgorder requires write access to the directory that it is examining
as it writes the yum config file there.  However, on some occassions, we'll want
to run pkgorder against a read-only directory.  So, it would be helpful if the
yum config file was just stored in a temp dir.

Actually we shouldn't need a config file at all, we can just do what anaconda
does now and create the yumconf and repo objects.

... and, pkgorder should die and be integrated more generically with createrepo.
 On Paul's plate

the config file in pkgorder is already in tmp in rawhide.
