Description Eric Hansin 2007-06-08 00:48:44 EDT
Description of problem:

Yum.conf manpage lists file location different than where they are in /etc. 
Manpage lists:

/etc/yum/yum.conf
/etc/yum/repos.d/
/etc/yum/pluginconf.d/

yet actual structure on filesystem is:

/etc/yum.conf
/etc/repos.d/

/etc/yum/pluginconf.d is correct.

yum.conf manpage updated for F7

I made a simple patch for 'yum.conf.5'. It updates yum configuration file and
directory for repos. The original source that I used is available here:

Imho the locations in the filesystem need to be adjusted, these new file
locations  seem to be already supported by yum and imho are better than the old
ones.

What's happening is this - we had to support multiple paths for some of the
files for backward compat. The man pages are correct - we just also support
other places to allow older installs of config files and repository info to work
correctly.
