Hi

The latest version of yum (3.1.4) in rawhide seems to be behaving rather inconsistently when it comes to dealing with repository metadata. I am cleaning the cache and metadata and rerunning different commands like yum info <package> and yum update to verify.

On some instances it downloads the compressed sqlite database directly. In other instances it downloads and parses the compressed xml file. Sometimes it downloads and parses the compressed xml file and then proceeds to download the compressed sqlite database too. It seems to be occurring randomly. Is there any explanation why. I cant see any reason for yum to redundantly download the exact same metadata is the form of both xml file and sqlite database.

are you using a mirror list? It'll download what it can find based on
what mirror list it has.

Yes. I am using the default configuration from a F7 test 2 live CD installation + the latest updates. I understand getting xml or sqlite based on what is available on the mirror but I dont quite understand why it would download both files. It seems logical to just download the sqlite database if it is available and skip the xml file completely in that instance.

not by my measurements.

Guess i misread something then.
