Doc Text:
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.

Description James Antill 2008-07-10 11:08:47 EDT
Description of problem:
 This is the general BZ holder for the 5.3 errata to rebase to the 3.2.17/3.2.18
upstream yum. This rebase should be much less pain than the 3.2.8++ rebase we
did for 5.2, as we are mainly doing it for the resource usage drop work we've
done (although there are a couple of features people want to).

Version-Release number of selected component (if applicable):
current: 3.2.8++

Additional info:
 This errata goes hand in hand with bug 444085, although doesn't rely on it.
 This errata also goes hand in hand with a yum-utils errata, although shouldn't
rely on that.
