Re: FC6 updates broken deps?

because this way its nothing but a hack that does not solve the main problem: yum should _NOT_ fail to update a package because a unreleated package has a dep problem.

Let me re-phrase it:

The light in the kitchen should not fail to function because a bulb in the basement is broken.

Having a modular architecture is fine and all, but basic functionality _must_ be included in the core. The skip-broken thing is so obvious, it boggles the mind there's even a discussion about it.

It would be nice if Red Hat could conduct (more) usability tests on software that's important for the OS. That would probably de-nerdify a lot of applications.
