Not in, but yum works fine with rpm-python from @rpm5.org.
There's one minor issue with a StopIteration exception
from a python iterator for which both a fix and a 3 line
change to yum are known. There's no place to put the "fix".
There are "features" in @rpm5.org that will never be supported
by yum. You can either disable the feature, or otherwise
work around yum developers recalcitrance.
Yum will NEVER accept any patches from @rpm5.org.
Clearly and publically and repeatedly stated by yum developers.
But I use yum with @rpm5.org all the time, and IDMS linux ships
with firstname.lastname@example.org as its depsolver. I.e. "works".
