Almost got me. Fixing for old-yum would be bonus. Though, I think the
true bonus would be incremental update. Still thinking about it
though. Mass --resign is a burden. Rerun of metadata is a burden. If
there could be a MANIFEST from build to sign to metadata to publish
incrementally operating on stuff surrounding the list, then managing
thousands of packages becomes less of a burden.
incremental update may not actually be any faster.
Think about it - how would you make sure the incremental update was
You'd have to:
1. read in all the xml
2. open and checksum(sha1, md5)
compare filenames + checksums to what you just obtained
add/delete/modify as necessary
write back out ALL of the xml.
so tell me again how much saving you're going to get?
