Thigs are steadily improving. You can help by filing bug reports and
feature requests to bugzilla.redhat.com. its far better to way to
actually make some progress that no amount of discussions on the
mailing lists would do.
If you want a feature or you have a bug just do the discussions on
bugzilla.redhat.com. seth vidal (yum developer) usually responds
within a day and gets the problem resolved pretty quickly.
