Utilities based around the yum package manager

Yum-utils is a collection of utilities and examples for the yum package manager. It includes utilities by different authors that make yum easier and more powerful to use. The commands provided are:

  • repo-graph: output a full package dependency graph in dot

format * repo-rss: generate an RSS feed from one or more yum repositories * repoclosure: display a list of unresolved dependencies for a yum repository * repodiff: list differences between two or more yum repositories * repomanage: list the newest or oldest packages in a yum repository * repoquery: query information from yum repositories * reposync: synchronize yum repositories to a local directory * repotrack: track a package and its dependencies and download them * yum-builddep: install missing dependencies for building an RPM package * yum-complete- transaction: attempt to complete failed or aborted yum transactions * yum-config-manager: manage yum configuration options and yum repositories * yum-groups-manager: create and edit group metadata for a yum repository * yumdb: query and alter the yum database * yumdownloader: download RPM packages from yum repositories

On Debian and derived systems, this package can be useful for installing and managing chroots or lxc containers of yum-based distributions. The utilities for querying and managing yum repositories may also be useful for maintaining repositories of RPM packages on a Debian host.
