yum-cron - an interface to convieniently call yum from cron
yum-cron is an alternate interface to yum that is optimised to be convenient to call from cron. It provides methods to keep repository
metadata up to date, and to check for, download, and apply updates. Rather than accepting many different command line arguments, the dif-
ferent functions of yum-cron can be accessed through config files.
config-file is used to optionally specify the path to the configuration file to use. If it is not given, the default configuration file
will be used. It is useful to be able to specify different configuration files for different use cases. For example, one configuration
file might be set to update the repository metadata, and a line could be added to the crontab to run yum-cron frequently using this file.
Then, another configuration file might be set to install updates, and yum-cron could be run from cron using this file just once each day.

There of course aren't any bugs, but if you find any, you should email
the mailing list, email@example.com, or consult bugzilla.

yum-debug-restore - replay Yum transactions captured in a debug-dump file
yum-debug-restore is a program which takes a gzipped file created by yum-debug-dump and acts on the information about installed packages
GENERAL OPTIONS --output
Output the commands that would be run to stdout.
Output the commands that would be run to a file.
Ask yum to install the latest version of the given packages, instead of the version that was installed in the debug-dump file.
Ignore the architecture of the packages, so you can "restore" an i386 debug-dump on an x86_64 machine.
Only perform the given types of commands, so you can filter to just upgrades and installs.
As yum-debug-restore uses YUM libraries for retrieving all the information, it relies on YUM configuration for its default values like
which repositories to use. Consult YUM documentation for details:
See the Authors file included with this program.
There are of course 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: firstname.lastname@example.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.
