    19 The long and short is downgrades are possible right now. We don't expose them trivially b/c of all the trouble people get into when they perform them.  
     19 * Currently the depsolver doesn't work very well for downgrades, as it can't downgrade extra packages. However you can use tools like yum-debug-dump and yum-debug-restore, which should include all packages needed.

    21 If you only want to perform a simple downgrade from a minor version or release update of a package then your best bet is to use yumdownloader to fetch the older version and then using '''rpm -Uvh --replacepkgs --replacefiles --oldpackage file.rpm''' to downgrade it.

     21There is now a downgrade command.
