yum has been re-based to upstream version 3.2.18. This update improves the speed at which yum operates, thereby alleviating the problem posed by the ever-growing number of packages included with each minor release. In addition, this update also introduces the reinstall command, improves the interface for several commands, and applies several bug fixes, including:
* Any yum commands would fail if the -c option was used to specify a configuration file residing on a web address (http). This bug is now fixed.
* A checkSignal() function in yum called an incorrect exit function; as such, exiting yum would result in a traceback instead. With this release, yum now exits properly.
