Yes, to the meta-point in this discussion, this is the advantage of
filing a bug report. We could add the yum developer to resolve the
question, for example. Attach patches of suggested fixes, such as
admonition that covers your situation. Etc.
But how do we cover this in the case of e.g. one writer and another
needing to discuss and dispute technical content? Our workflow should
allow for informal channels of discussion, and give some suggestions
about when to break out of informality into something more formal
(difficult to use) but useful (can drag in more people). Also, informal
discussions should probably happen on-list, so we all benefit/critique.
