And as I've already pointed out *in the very same thread*, this comment
is related to PackageKit, NOT to yum. My comment about yum is correct
and I stand by it. Furthermore, my observation about there not being any
difference of opinion is again *explicitly* about yum. Read the post
again if you don't understand.

You really need to read what people are actually saying, not what you
seem to think they're saying.
