Thanks for the work on yum

Is yum perfect? Obviously not; nothing is. But doggone it, it sure has made sysadmin of RPM-based boxes a lot easier than before we had yum (or yup, its predecessor). Thanks to yum, I made a little bash/Expect script that logs into all my boxes and does the updates, all automagically, and reboots the box if necessary, i. e. if there's a kernel or glibc update.

Thanks for your continued work on this tool.
