Description Jóhann B. Guðmundsson 2008-12-30 10:29:18 EST
Description of problem:

When network connection has not been established and a user runs 
for example yum update it seems to rerun from cache and does not notify
the user that it is doing so..

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


How reproducible:


Steps to Reproduce:
1. Turn off the network interface
2. Run yum update
Actual results:

Runs from cache without notifying the user that it's doing so
why it does.

Expected results:

User gets notifyed that it's running from cache and does so 
since it's unable to connect/reach the "repo" 

"Unable to reach $repo ran from cache"

Or some other informative messages that it's doing it and why..

Additional info:

Minor nuance..

It operates from a cache if the repomd.xml is within the cache timeout period. It doesn't notify the user b/c at this point it has no reason to. It's not even connected to the network.
