Re: yum





2009/10/23 John Summerfield <debian herakles homelinux org>

I for one would vote for more integrated[1] functionality, and fewer optional extras. Some might be turned off by default - not everyone should use fastestmirror for example. Yum commands to manipulate plugins (and repos) would be handy:
 
yum list plugins

-> yum search "yum plugin"

yum disable plugin fred
 
-> yum <command> --disable-plugin=<plugin_list>

there's no --enable-plugin though
 
"plugin" and "plugins" should be synonymous, people are likely to use either and become frustrated when they guess wrongly.


teach people to read man pages instead of guessing when using a shell, it may be handy also
