Description James Antill 2008-07-10 11:18:22 EDT
Description of problem:
 Rebase yum-utils to the upstream 1.1.15 or 1.1.16 where we'll get the
yum-security fix, and a few other small fixes/changes. The main motivator is
that this is what's tested upstream and that there's not a lot of changes that
could break things.
