YUM isn't too high on our todo list here @rpm5.org, if -- for no other reason --
	All patches originating from @rpm5.org WILL be categorically rejected.
Kinda hard to work with a project that refuses all patches a priori.

Hint: think about smart (or dare I say it?) urpmi.

Meanwhile YUM works fine with @rpm5.org last I checked (once
you goose a few bits in the YUM code with a wedgie  …)
