What's the eventual goal?

On Fedora 11 (x86_32)

$ sudo solv info coreutils. Keeping reading some of the metadata over
and over again instead of caching them it seems. It also reads the xml
files instead of sqlite databases supported more recently.  Also claims
some of the repos don't have repomd.xml file while they do


$ sudo solv search quake3

returns nothing after reading some of the repos again for quite
sometime. Ping me in irc if you need to test specific commands more. I
am mether in freenode and usually in #fedora-devel
