The Perfect Yum.conf File



I'm new to Fedora and Yum, just getting on the bandwagon on Test 3.  I'm
a convert from Mandrake, which is *NOT* more user-friendly, easier to
install, easier to update or have better hardware and network detection
on install than Fedora, contrary to popular opinion.  But, that's for
another thread.  And whether Fedora is a "project" or "product" intended
for "hobbyists" or "non-corporate home users" doesn't really matter to
me, since it seems intended to stand up against the other major distros
and DOES!

This thread is for the perfect Yum.conf file. 

http://www.fedoratracker.org has just added the ability to generate Apt
and Yum config files but FC2 repositories are just changing over so it's
not yet complete.  

So, maybe we can help each other develop the perfect Yum.conf file. 
Define "perfect" however you choose.  Add, delete and modify, according
to your free will with this free distro.  My version of perfect is to
add Dag, FreshRPMs, etc, when I find the right F2 code.  Your version of
perfect might be something different.  This is what I have so far...

What say you?
