In my example this was exactly the case. I am the root, childrens are

No one is fault proof.
What's wrong in trying to avoid things that can completely broke the

If yum history showed that a protection for critical packages is useful 
and appreciated by the majority, why the yum replacement shouldn't 
implement that protection saying it's unuseful?
