I just noticed that yum itself works OK with /etc/yum/yum.conf, but yum-utils
does not.

Also worth checking: Other yum frontends (yumex, kyum). I didn't really test
them, but grep shows:



/usr/lib/python2.5/site-packages/yumex/bestmirror.py:# make sure you have
'plug
ins=1' in your /etc/yum.conf.
/usr/lib/python2.5/site-packages/yumex/fastestmirror.py:# make sure you have
'p
lugins=1' in your /etc/yum.conf.
/usr/lib/python2.5/site-packages/yumex/yumexUtils.py: r =
'/etc/yum.conf
'
/usr/lib/python2.5/site-packages/yumex/yumexUtils.py: if self.filename
=
= '/etc/yum.conf':
Übereinstimmungen in Binärdatei
/usr/lib/python2.5/site-packages/yumex/yumexUti
ls.pyc.
Übereinstimmungen in Binärdatei ./opt/kde3/bin/kyum.



And it's not nice to see the tools stop working on upgrade. It should move the
file to its new location, but it has to handle .rpmsave etc. correctly.

Is it really worth the hassle? I suggest postponing the /etc/yum.conf ->
/etc/yum/yum.conf change until the tools are fixed upstream.

The /etc/yum.repos.d -> /etc/yum/repos.d change is fine for me because yum
reads both.
