Yum (Yellow dog Updater, Modified) is an automatic updater and package
installer/remover for rpm systems. It automatically computes dependencies
and figures out what things should occur to install packages. It makes it
easier to maintain groups of machines without having to manually update
each one using rpm.
Features include:
* Multiple Repositories
* Simple config file
* Correct dependency calculation
* Fast operation
* rpm-consistent behavior
* comps.xml group support, including multiple repository groups
* Simple interface

yum (3.2.25-2) unstable; urgency=low
* Fixes crash at start of yum with error: urlparse: AttributeError: 'module'
object has no attribute 'uses_fragment' (Closes: #679067).
* Using zigo@debian.org as maintainer email.
2009-12-26 - Thomas Goirand <thomas@goirand.fr>
yum (3.2.25-1) unstable; urgency=low
* New upstream version.
* Not using the yumpackage@gplhost.com, but my "normal" email address again
as maintainer address, as my employee Manuel is no longer willing to help,
as he resigned from his position at GPLHost.
* Removed patches that are no longer needed thanks to my work with upstream:
- yum.conf.5 has been corrected thanks to a patch I sent to upstream, so
a patch in Debian is no longer needed, same for the yum.8 man page.
- python-iniparse has been uploaded to SID, so a patch to not use it is as
well not needed anymore.
- python-gpgme is now in SID.
- The version of logrotate in SID now supports yearly rotating, so a
patch is no longer needed as well.
All together, the number of patches needed for Yum is reduced to only 1,
making it A WAY more easy to maintain.
* Changed dependency from just python-celementtree to python (>= 2.5) |
python-celementtree as python-celementtree is now part of python2.5, and
that python2.4 is to be removed from SID (Closes: #562455).
* Bumped Standards-Version.
* Reworked a bit the debian/copyright so it's more accurate.
* Reworked the debian/README.Debian, wrote a debian/source.
* Switched from Required to Should in the debian/yum-updatesd.init, added
a $local_fs as Should also, and did some tiny cleanups in debian/rules.
2009-06-13 - GPLHost yum packaging team <yumpackage@gplhost.com>
yum (3.2.23-1) unstable; urgency=low
* New upstream release
* Removed the patch for the Makefile that is now useless (upstream changed
* Compat is now 5.
2009-04-01 - GPLHost yum packaging team <yumpackage@gplhost.com>
yum (3.2.21-2) unstable; urgency=low
* Moved python-dev, python-support and intltool to Build-Depends-Indep:
* Added a Homepage: field and a watch file
* Added mechanismes in debian/rules to preserve po/yum.pot that is created
each time by the build process (the .diff.gz was big for nothing, this is
better now).
* Added a patch so that etc/yum.logrotate uses monthly as logrotate option,
as we received cron emails from some of our servers in production, warning
that yearly is not a valid option for logrotate. The cron job for
logrotate should be more quite now.
* Now depending on debhelper >= 5.
* Bumped StandardVersion to 3.8.1.
