I've been planning for some time now a get together of sorts in person to hash this out. The basic idea I'm thinking of is a runtime configuration in yum that lets you adhere to whatever multilib strategy you want on that particular system. You point at both full repos and let yum figure out, based on requested strategy, what to do on install/update/obsolete/whatever actions. Composing exploaded repos is easy, no cross pollination. Composing DVDs is easy (but bloaty) you just put both repos in whole on the media (or opt out of the secondary arch all together on the media). My plan for the get together is to hash out what each of these strategies are, get out and understood why we're at where we are at today (I'm told time and time again that there are real good reasons...), determine the best default strategy going forward, and work out what happens when users do silly things like change strategies mid stream or whatever. I wanted to do this near the time that F9 development starts, unknown if it will happen or not. -- Jesse Keating Fedora -- All my bits are free, are yours?
