yum downloads metadata unnecessarily
Last modified: 2014-01-21 17:59:28 EST
Yum is downloading metadata when it shouldn't have to - surely it can't
need metadata when I am asking it to clean everything? Yum version is 3.2.4
root@linux~]# yum clean all

Cleaning up Everything
Thanks - found the bug - fixed in upstream will be out in 3.2.5 and later.
patch which fixes it is here:

My bug writes also something about a filtering these unnecessary downloads for
yum update or yum install:
May be yum can detect this after downloading 2-3 files and re-download
repomd.xml from same server as primary.sqlite file.
Is it possible to implement something like this?
install/update downloads of metadata is another thing that is hard to address
If you're talking about a stale repomd.xml file then some of that is supposed to
be handled by mirrormanager.
