Wed Jul 14 14:51:01 UTC 2010 -

- Adding a workaround for a problem in the cpp package where it
  does not provide /lib/cpp, which xorg-x11 requires.  This patch
  manually adds a <file>/lib/cpp</file> node.

Thu May 20 12:50:10 CEST 2010 -

- old yum versions throw an error if a package in rpmmd metadata does
  not contain a rpm:sourcerpm element. Thus we add an empty element
  if we generate output with the old "sha" checksum type.

Thu Apr 15 11:46:18 CEST 2010 -

- move requires for python-urlgrabber to yum-common subpackage 

Mon Apr 12 10:37:57 UTC 2010 -

- Porting patches over from createrepo-0.4:
  - EULA support (<license-to-confirm>)
  - SUSE changelog support
  - Adds suggests, recommends, supplements, and recommends tags
  - Disables an annoying thing where yum dumps the contents
    of a node to the terminal when the contents are not utf-8

Wed Mar 31 11:48:05 UTC 2010 -

Wed Apr  9 16:57:40 CEST 2008 -

- update to version 3.2.14
  * memory footprint of yum should go down a bit thanks to some diligent
  * a number of depsolving 'features' should have been fixed
  * translation updates
  * a number of unicode decode issues were fixed

Thu Mar 20 17:08:00 CET 2008 -

- update to version 3.2.13
  * 3.2.13 shows a number of significant improvements over 3.2.12 not the
    least of which is a number of depsolving bugfixes. Additionally, James
    Antill has committed some code that slightly increases memory use during
    depsolving but increases the speed of certain depsolving routines
    between 30% and 60%.  A significant savings for a relatively small
    memory use (8-10%).

Tue Mar 18 11:27:35 CET 2008 -

- update to version 3.2.12
  * installed_object.verify() works much like and/or better than rpm -Va
    does now and enables the yum-verify plugin
  * a number of memory saving improvements
  * speed ups in handling of excludes
  * for both of the ia64 users it is now enabled again!
  * when depsolving we've added a number of heuristics to pick the right
    provider from a list of providers. A couple of the heuristics include:
    - see if the sourcerpm of the providing and the requiring packages is
      the same
    - see if the most characters of the package name lead match. This helps
      with cases like both totem-lirc and xmms-lirc providing the library
      for totem-debuginfo.
  * write method for the comps object in yum to write out a compliant comps
    xml file based on the imported comps files.

  * fix requirements moving to new packages when a package is obsoleted
  * when an obsolete is available for a package, only install most matching

  epoch (#331818)

Fri Oct  5 23:01:27 CEST 2007 -

- update to version 3.2.6
  * Mostly bug fixes in this version. A number of output changes which
    mostly just make it clearer whats going on when yum says things like
    'Nothing to do'.
  * also added a 'cost' option to repository and global configuration
    cost  relative  cost of accessing this repository. Useful for weighing
          one repo’s packages as greater/less than any other. defaults to
- changes in 3.2.5

Wed Aug 29 23:14:33 CEST 2007 -

- fix build

Wed Aug 29 19:58:37 CEST 2007 -

- update to version 3.2.4
  * So, yum 3.2.3 had a few issues that needed some immediate addressing. 
    Mostly the depsolving was still off by a couple and a few output
    situations blew up using the new transaction callbacks. But never fear,
    it, and an array of other items have been addressed in 3.2.4 :)

Thu Aug 23 15:22:41 CEST 2007 -

- update to version 3.2.3
  * If you find a transaction aborted before it finished (or your computer
    went off or whatever) go to /var/lib/yum and compare the
    transaction-all.timestamp file with the transaction-done.timestamp file. 
    The things remaining in transaction-all that aren't in transaction-done
    are what is left to do.
  * If you're confused by -e and -d as debug and error log levels you'll
    be happy to see --verbose and --quiet.
  * A bunch of plugins which exclude pkgs should be much faster now.
  * If there is something else holding the yum lock file, yum will wait
    and try again.

Tue Aug  7 15:25:09 CEST 2007 -

- added yum-HEAD.patch

Tue Aug  7 09:20:17 CEST 2007 -

- update to version 3.2.2
  * integrated installonlyn plugin functionality - new config option
    installonly_limit will remove old, non-running kernels from your system
    as you add more. It defaults to off, though.
  * we're downloading and saving mirrorlists locally, now, for a cached
    default. So you don't have to grab them each time if you run frequently.
  * implement an extra rpm transaction check at the end of the depsolving.
    This will help us catch invalid depsolving we might be doing. Defaults
    to on.
  * bunch of depsolving issues, multilib depsolving issues, unicode output
  * See the changelog for the complete list
- changes in version 3.2.1
  * fixes to the depsolving to get it much more correct than it was in
  * catch errors from yum-updatesd more gracefully
  * series of misc fixes for encoding breakages
  * 15% speed up of list  and list 'all' commands
  * yum search now returns results based on all search terms included and
    returns results ranked with most-matches at the top

Mon May 21 13:22:10 CEST 2007 -

- update to version 3.2.0
  * latests stable release
- drop yum-install.patch, included in 3.2.0

Thu May  3 13:48:24 CEST 2007 -

- added yum-3.1.7.patch to workaround bug #255914

Thu May  3 13:38:24 CEST 2007 -

- update to version 3.1.7
  * We raised the minor version on yum-metadata-parser b/c we've increased
    the db version of the yum sqlite dbs to 10. yum 3.1.7 now has an
    explicit require on yum-metadata-parser 1.1.0
  * There have been a lot of changes since yum 3.1.6. The depsolver has
    changed around, we've merged optimizations from all sorts of folks and
    added in a couple of new features. As well we have hopefully fixed a
    number of bugs. :)

Tue Apr 10 15:03:09 CEST 2007 -

- added yum-install.patch by Jan Matejek which replaces $(PYDIR) with
  correct value, $(PKGDIR)

Fri Apr  6 11:44:03 CEST 2007 -

- update to version 3.1.6
  * 3.1.6 brings with it another round of fixes and optimizations to the
    depsolver. It also ports forward some changes from 3.0.X that were
    needed. This release should provide depsolver speed experience more
    inline with what we want.

Tue Mar 27 15:53:42 CEST 2007 -

- update to version 3.1.5
  * This is a substantially less sucky yum 3.1.X release for those folks
    suffering with the depsolving rate in 3.1.4. It's still not great but
    it's a damned-sight better than it was. :)

Fri Mar  9 09:10:01 CET 2007 -

- minor typo fixes to repos.tar.bz2

Thu Mar  8 16:51:50 CET 2007 -

- added repos.tar.bz2, which includes preconfigured openSUSE channels for yum (#245899)

Thu Mar  8 14:50:12 CET 2007 -

- update to version 3.1.4
  * We've fixed a few more things in the depsolver and optimized more of the
    sqlite look ups. As well as some slowdowns in excludePackages().

Thu Mar  1 21:33:41 CET 2007 -

- update to version 3.1.3
  * more depsolver fixes on the new depsolver - it's probably working more
    accurately now, we hope. :)
  * properties - if you're using the yum module for doing any programming
    we've gotten rid of all of the need for things like doConfigSetup(),
    doRepoSetup(), doSackSetup(), etc. You can just reference the attribute
    you want and python properties will set it up for you automatically with
    the default config options. You can still call those functions, of
    course, but you only need to call them if you want to pass them
    different configuration options.
  * speed ups. We've made a lot of changes to our calls to query the sqlite
    dbs. Trimming out a lot of fat and also dumping some downright silly
    ways of doing things.

Wed Feb 21 10:00:11 CET 2007 -

- update to version 3.1.2
  * This is a development release and should not be used on systems where
    you value their continued functionality. That said, it passed all the
    release tests, for what those are worth. This is a big change from
    previous yum versions as we're doing all the dep solving inside yum. It
    doesn't download headers to do the dependency resolution.  It uses what
    information it has to do them. We were focusing on correctness with this
    release over many speedups. However, for a lot of simple cases it
    appears to be about the same as it was before, just w/o all the
    downloading during the dep resolution. We'll be adding in optimizations
    once we're more confident of the correctness of it.

Wed Feb  7 13:53:36 CET 2007 -

- update to version 3.1.1
  * download sqlite db's directly if the repository was made with createrepo
    0.4.7 or higher using the -d option.
  * should be able to handle media:// urls quasi-sanely now
  * faster package name resolution in install/update/erase commands
  * addition of a utils base class to be used by yum-utils for simpler, more
    consistent commands.
- changelog for 3.1.0
  * This is mostly 3.0.3 + some new logging patches from Terje and Tim and
    some cleanups from James.

Mon Jan  8 21:42:38 CET 2007 -

  * yum/ Remove unused code for manipulating the
    failure_obj during __get

 	each time explicitly.
  * yum/ raise the right error... this ended up
    manifesting itself by raising the last error (which had been passed
    on) instead of the intended and an entirely non-obvious traceback. 
    moral of the story: always raise a specific exception
  * yum/ fix var expansion
  * yum/ fix handling of base path

  * yum/:, cleaned up Repository.setkeys as discussed
    on yum-devel
  * yum/ Removed on the fly write-back support from the config
    classes. Added BaseConfig.write() instead. This is simpler and should
    use less memory. No-one was using the write support anyway.

  * yum/ minor fix to deprecated returnTupleByKeyword method in

    Paul Nasrat, merged YumRepository and RepoConf to help allow config

    place we could potentially not unlock the pid file
  * yum/:, swap arguments on __init__ for a few
    Package types so that we have consistency
  * yum/ clean up some duplicate code to take advantage of the
    fact that the rpmdb is now a package sack

    that our grabber has the right info.  this makes it so that we get
    progress feedback when downloading in pirut again
  *, yum/ fix whatprovides based on a patch from Tim
  * yum/ makePackageObject -> _makePackageObject
  * yum/ Fixed the disk space check; it was failing because
    po.size can be a string.  Make the disk space check more readable by
    using the statvfs attributes.

  * yum/ as I read through the changes: - clean up one docstring

    consistent - if our pkglist is length zero then they would have traced
  * yum/:,, 
    - move refineSearchPattern into misc from YumBase 
    - clean up some pychecker errors
  * yum/ Big cleanup of RPMDBPackageSack. Indexes are no longer
    built (buildIndexes).  This significantly reducing Yum's initialisation
    time and reduces memory footprint. Despite the lack of indexes almost
    all operations are faster.
  *,, yum/, yum/, yum/ 
    - fix up findDeps interface 
    - it now takes a list of package objects 
    - clean up a deprecation in deplistoutput
