What is unfinished in this script?
Some TODO areas/comments in it.
Limited/dumb multilib support - with a currently hardcoded flag.
Obsoletes/Conflicts tag checks only without in-range comparison of EVRs.
File mode conflicts only as warnings in output.
No command-line option yet to make it reuse data calculated in pass 1 of 2.
Some hardcoded Yum API changes, so it currently runs on Fedora >= 8
and perhaps EL5, but probably not EL4.
Can one use it against a repo like
Yes. By default it uses /etc/yum.conf and the system's list of compatible
archs, but one can point it to a custom yum.conf.
I usually run it with option "-r rawhide" to check Rawhide and
add a couple of additional -r options for RPM Fusion.
or against a package and a repo like I suggested?
A local package would need to be put into a local repo, because
the script can check repos only.
(Of course performance is an issue, so if the scripts takes a while
can's be chained in, yet, but it would be a start)
It takes approx. 1G of RAM, half a GB of disk space, and several minutes
to run it. ;o)
