User-Agent: Mozilla/5.0 (X11; U; Linux i686; en-US; rv:0.9.7) Gecko/20011226

Description of problem:
For use in test scripts, I would like to be able to solve dependencies for a
package without downloading it.  --solvedeps still downloads packages.

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

How reproducible:
Didn't try

Additional info:
Comment 1 Adrian Likins 2002-02-05 18:19:58 EST
should be implemented in cvs now
Comment 2 David M. Cook 2002-02-12 03:51:45 EST
Minor issue: prints out "Retrieving selected packages..." before exiting.

More major issue: has a non-zero exit status
Comment 3 David M. Cook 2002-02-12 03:58:33 EST
On further testing, I'm getting a non-zero exit status on regular, uneventful
up2date invocations like

up2date samba-swat
Comment 4 David M. Cook 2002-02-22 15:33:49 EST
2.7.31-7.x.2 doesn't seem to be giving a spurious non-zero exit status.
