Description Joe Orton 2000-11-19 05:44:03 EST
If I have to spent 5 hours on-line to have up2date download a set of new
RPMs (e.g. glibc*), it's a bit annoying that after up2date has 
installed the packages, they just get deleted. Having a copy of the
RPMs is useful, e.g., if my system gets wiped and I need to re-install.
Or I can copy them to another machine and install them. etc.

A simple check box somewhere for "do not delete RPMs after installation"
would be nice!

run up2date-config and select this option; it already exists.
