Right, I meant conflicts between latest versions of packages in
all repositories.

We have that too, for the packages that explicitly mark themselves as
conflicting.  We don't catch unmarked file conflicts until we've
downloaded and attempt to install, and then it's caught by rpm.  Lots of
multilib file coloring magic here.

Ok, I thought we have a policy that forbids it. So there is actually a
good reason why it should be supported by yum.

We have a policy that forbids non-explicit file conflicts, yes.

If you have two pkgs and you know foo owns a file that bar also owns - you are obligated to put an explicit conflict in place.

The reason why yum doesn't detect them is b/c the metadata about files does not include color and checksum (mainly b/c if we did include that in the filelists metadata it would be outrageously large) If the satsolver is going to detect those then it will have to be AFTER it downloads all the rpms.

Do you see what I mean?
