It would be nice if you could restore "yum provides" to its previous working state. If I say "yum provides foo", it's because I want to know which package provides file foo. If there happens to be a feature called foo, then by all means show packages that provide that as well. But don't force me to do "yum provides */foo" just because I happen to know I'm looking for a file. I suppose I really should log that as a bug. But then again, 99% of my bug reports are ignored anyway, so I'm losing faith in that approach somewhat.
