    v1 v2  
    1010 * The yum-plugin-aliases plugin now works on commands you type into "yum shell". 
    1111 * If a package is being reinstalled or downgraded, it is displayed as such when listing the transaction (instead of Eg. being marked as an install and remove). 
     12 * Fix the bad exit code from rpm, on reinstall, due to removal of the remove part of reinstall. 
    1213 * "yum reinstall" of a package that is installed, but not available for reinstall, will now give a message to the user telling them that. 
    1314 * Skip updateinfo files that are broken, where before we gave a message and stopped yum. 
     15 * Don't error out if the user tries to update a package that doesn't exist. 
     16 * Add sslverify etc. config. options.
