The separate updates directory has been a pain for as long as I've been using RHL/Fedora Core/Fedora. It means you have two places to look when searching for packages manually, and twice as much to configure when you're configuring yum. It has never benefitted me, or anybody I know, but it has caught me out on any number of occasions. What's more, nobody really seems to know why it's like that: it seems it's always been that way, and nobody ever bother to fix it.

So lets fix it. The package set at release time is only interesting to historians. If any of them are really that bothered, I'm sure somebody can come up with a yum module which finds the oldest available version of a package in a repo.

Would not this also provide the minor added benefit that there could now be a drpm for the first update for a package?

We already have that if the update is done after GA.


If that's the case, then good. In that case, I see no huge benefit to leaving it or changing it.
