Fedora16-17 and rhel7 Yum Goals

  • C-API - Hard
  • Parallel Downloading - medium
  • external call for downloads - coupled with parallel downloading
  • libs from plugins - medium
  • event notification/querying (traps/events/querying) - could be hard - depending on the querying
  • repo deltas - requires repodata format change - could be gotten for free.
  • repodata smaller/changing/format change - potentially big change
  • detached x509 sigs for pkg signatures - requires lots of infrastructure/releng cooridination
  • python 3 support? - ???
  • documentation of our public interfaces - not hard - time consuming
  • make the user feel the impact of the yum/transaction lock less often - medium
  • weakdependencies (in metadata) - not hard
  • replacing the depsolver? - involved/hard
