NAME
       yum filter data plugin

SYNOPSIS
       yum [options] [command] [package ...]

DESCRIPTION
       This  plugin  extends yum with some options, currently just for "update" and "list update"
       type commands, to allow filters to be placed on which packages should be used based on the
       data  in  those	packages. Note that due to some of the data being unknown, and thus could
       possibly match, all unknown data is treated as a match.

GENERAL OPTIONS
       These are the options added to yum  that  are  available  in  the  "list  updates",  "info
       updates", "check-update" and "update" commands. They are:

       --filter-vendors
	      This  option  includes packages which have a vendor which matches one of the passed
	      vendor wildcard strings, or is unknown. Note that vendors can have spaces in  their
	      value, so "," is the only way to specify multiple vendors as one option argument.

       --filter-rpm-groups
	      This  option  includes  packages which have a group which matches one of the passed
	      rpm group wildcard strings, or is unknown. Note that rpm groups can have spaces  in
	      their  value,  so  "," is the only way to specify multiple rpm groups as one option
	      argument.

       --filter-packagers
	      This option includes packages which have a packager which matches one of the passed
	      packager	wildcard  strings,  or	is  unknown. Note that vendors can have spaces in
	      their value, so "," is the only way to specify multiple  packagers  as  one  option
	      argument.

       --filter-licenses
	      This  option includes packages which have a license which matches one of the passed
	      license wildcard strings, or is unknown. Note that  licenses  can  have  spaces  in
	      their  value,  so  ","  is  the only way to specify multiple licenses as one option
	      argument.

       --filter-arches
	      This option includes packages which have a arch which matches  one  of  the  passed
	      arch wildcard strings, or is unknown.

       --filter-committers
	      This  option  includes  packages	which  have  a committer which matches one of the
	      passed committer wildcard strings, or is unknown. Note  that  committers	can  have
	      spaces in their value, so "," is the only way to specify multiple committers as one
	      option argument. Also, committer values are so loosely formed that they could  con-
	      tain  commas  too,  it  is recommended to not do that but you can work around it by
	      using "?".

       --filter-buildhosts
	      This option includes packages which have a  buildhost  which  matches  one  of  the
	      passed buildhost wildcard strings, or is unknown.

       --filter-urls
	      This  option includes packages which have a url which matches one of the passed url
	      wildcard strings, or is unknown.

       --filter-package-sizes
	      This option includes packages which have a packagesize which is within one  of  the
	      passed packagesize ranges, or is unknown.

       --filter-archive-sizes
	      This  option  includes packages which have a archivesize which is within one of the
	      passed archivesize ranges, or is unknown.

       --filter-installed-sizes
	      This option includes packages which have a installedsize which is within one of the
	      passed installedsize ranges, or is unknown.

       --filter-groups
	      This  option  includes  packages	which are in a yum group which matches one of the
	      passed yum group id strings, or is unknown. Note that yum groups can have spaces in
	      their  value,  so  "," is the only way to specify multiple yum groups as one option
	      argument.

EXAMPLES
       To list all updates that are 1 MB or less use:

	      yum --filter-package-sizes=-1m check-update

       To apply updates that Dan Walsh has committed use:

	      yum --filter-committers='Dan Walsh *' update

       To list updates for a specific group use:

	      yum --filter-rpm-groups='App*/Sys*' list updates

       To apply updates to a specific set of groups use:

	      yum --filter-rpm-groups='App*/System,Devel*/Lib*,System Environment/Base' update

       To list updates for a set of yum groups use:

	      yum --filter-groups='PostgreSQL Database,Web Server' list updates

       To apply updates to a specific set of yum groups use:

	      yum --filter-groups='KDE,Core,Printing Support' update

BUGS
       Currently yum can't filter packages in all of the commands,  so	for  instance  "yum  list
       'yum*'" doesn't get the results filtered.

       Apart  from  that there are no bugs, but should you find any, you should first consult the
       FAQ section on http://yum.baseurl.org/wiki/Faq and if unsuccessful in finding a resolution
       contact	 the   mailing	 list:	 yum-devel@lists.baseurl.org.	 To   file   a	 bug  use
       http://bugzilla.redhat.com     for      Fedora/RHEL/Centos      related	    bugs      and
       http://yum.baseurl.org/report for all other bugs.
