Yum still should be able to break into a mode where it would install the
packages that can safely be installed, instead of just dying with a
complaint. Since yum is the base for pup and pirut, the features would
increase the ease of there use.
I tried apt before and it is not the answer. Improving yum functionality
seems a better solution.
Regarding rawhide, I expect some dep problems. I would rather have a
better program upgrader and installer though to trek the wagon trails.
Today is a good day to bribe a high-ranking public official.
