What exactly is 'yum list recent' ??



Hi;

I used 'yum list recent' to double check a recently updated package.  I
found what I wanted.  But ...

A couple of questions came to mind:

     1. What exactly is yum doing to give me that list?
     2. Does it use a 'best after date' or just give the updated /var
        package list?
     3. If I needed it, how might I write a 'yum list recent' command or
        bash script so that it gives the latest update date of a
        package?

Just curious.
