commit 8ccc24e106f82438638c284f5875eda9a47b22f7
Author: Daniel Mach <dmach@redhat.com>

    Improve --nogreedy behaviour to select only the best packages for target arch. Also exact package arch can be selected by specifying $name.$arch in the config file.

wildcard fix

I think the attached patch should fix it, but I did not have do any exhaustive testing yet, only tested several use cases.
I'll do more tests once I'm back from vacation, which is mid next week.
Can you check if the patch works at least a bit as expected?
Comment 3 Bill Nottingham 2012-04-27 16:55:45 EDT
In testing the fix, it appears to be correct, but also appears to be a lot slower than 2.10 was. Will try and time it when I'm in front of the box again.
