What's the homepage of yum?

Does it handle all *file* dependencies in rpm correctly?  Some versions
of Current had problems with this and apt-rpm does handle this correctly
(foe *all* files) when using the --bloat flag to the genXXXXdir tools
(without this flag it does some hueristics that only handle most cases,
but not all).
