Description seth vidal 2008-04-17 00:30:09 EDT
Description of problem:
user preupgrades their box
they boot up into the new release
a bunch of disk space is sucked up in /var/cache/yum/anaconda-upgrade
that space will not be cleaned up by commands like 'yum clean packages' b/c that
repo is not enabled anywhere.

it would great if anaconda could nuke that cache if the install completes

I think this should be a choice presented to the user.  If I want to upgrade
many other installs, I can then use the existing packages instead of having to
download them.  In that case, I am responsible for cleanup but I have chosen to be.
