Hi, thanks for working on this.

One request: when you get to debuginfo-install, can you please change 
it to not disable the debuginfo repository when it's done? Currently 
PackageKit leaves old debuginfo packages unchanged when it updates the 
packages they correspond to, which is annoying, and ABRT does not seem  
to do so either, which is not fun for anyone. That's "by design" since 
debuginfo-install leaves the debuginfo repository disabled, and of 
course PackageKit isn't going to look for updates from a repo that's 

An alternative would be to enable this repository by default. I guess 
it's currently disabled by default to make yum go faster, but that 
mostly makes sense for those who don't have any debuginfo installed.
