There are many interesting yum plugins. Check them out when you have the
time. Nice thing is they may not just work 100% yet but they don't break
anything.  :-)  They are 'plugins' because they are solid but still in
testing. The 'installonly' kernel plugin, for example, in now 'in' the
yum script.

Also look at yum-utils. Nice stuff in that.

good night.
