Do I need to repeat myself again and again that [and why] I don't want to
maintain repoclosure? I've told you that at least once, and we have never
talked specifically about commit access to repodiff. Not a year ago, not
in tickets #7 or #6, and not recently either. Perhaps with a comment (in
Oct 2009, months later) such as


in the context of repoclosure (!) again, you meant to cover repodiff,
too. If that's true, you haven't made that clear. I realise that both
repoclosure and repodiff belong into "yum-utils", but hey, I have not
asked for commit access to either one. How hard can it be to accept a
patch or reject it with a brief comment?

Btw: The comment on #6 (not by you, but by jlaska, was mostly negative
even, which is quite the opposite of offering commit access to that tool.
The comment claimed my tested patch would be wrong - not true, it is tons
better than the broken reverse'n'sort implementation in createrepo+repodiff
that just doesn't work as demonstrated by the rawhide report for a long
time and even broke repoview. Compare that with the old Fedora Extras
build report which still runs and runs and runs at RPM Fusion without such
