Description Bill Crawford 2008-02-15 12:28:23 UTC
Description of problem:
When using repoquery to do "-qi --changelog" the changelog is printed out 
*before* the info, and also with no visual indication to separate it from the 
previous output (i.e. the "info" output of the previous package). This is very 
confusing, e.g.:

Name        : xorg-x11-server-Xorg
Version     :
Release     : 42.fc8
Description :
X.org X11 is an open source implementation of the X Window System.  It
provides the basic low level functionality which full fledged
graphical user interfaces (GUIs) such as GNOME and KDE are designed
* Thu Jan 24 2008 Than Ngo <than@redhat.com> 3.3.8b-2
- add add LICENSE.GPL2/GPL3

The latter is the start of changelog data for *qt* not Xorg ...

Version-Release number of selected component (if applicable):

How reproducible:
repoquery --repoid=updates-testing -qi --changelog qt vim-enhanced 
xorg-x11-server-Xorg ConsoleKit | less

Steps to Reproduce:
1. Run command as above
2. Try to read the output
3. Get confused.
Actual results:
As above.

Expected results:
Output in expected order (info before changelog, especially since the -qi 
comes before the --changelog on the command line).

Additional info:
It would be even nicer if the packages were process in the order I asked for 
them. Maybe a pony.

Excellent. This is fixed in upstream and will be out in yum-utils 1.1.12.
