There's no real goal, I'm just trying to make the library as
flexible as possible.

It doesn't cache them if it encountered errors.

Yes, it doesn't make sense to support those, as libsatsolver doesn't
use sqlite.

"download error 6" means that curl exited with exit code 6, which
means "Couldn't resolve host" according to the man page. That's
pretty strange, because downloading "repomd.xml" seems to have worked,
but primary.xml.gz suddenly fails.

rpmfusion-free: is the repo configured to use a mirrorlist instead
of metalink? That's not supported yet. Should be easy to add, though.

Probably because it couldn't read the primary.xml file because of
the "download error 6" problem.

Thanks for testing!
