Description James Antill 2008-11-20 11:41:15 EST
Description of problem:
 If the user requests the dateutil support in yum-changelog plugin, and dateutil isn't installed (only in EPEL) we do:

                if dateutil_parser is None:
                    msg = "Dateutil module not available, so can't parse dates"
                    raise PluginYumExit(msg)

...except PluginYumExit wasn't imported, so this causes a traceback instead of a nice msg.

Version-Release number of selected component (if applicable):
yum-changelog.noarch                   1.1.16-11.el5                   installed

...upstream fix is:

    Import PluginYumExit so we can use it

Not sure if this is worth it, at this point ... but it's a simple fix, so I figured I'd add it and see.
