Re: About the current state of the Yum package in Lenny

I guess you could notice that this is a newer upstream version. Please
let me know if you think this would be an acceptable replacement to be
sent in lenny proposed updates. At least, I'd be happy if somebody could
NMU it to SID or experimental, so there's at least something working
available in the archive.

Also, I would be very happy if some other people could TEST this version
and confirm that it's now working. According to us, and our needs
(bootstrap a CentOS from network), it is, but we didn't run extended
