Re: [PATCH 0/3] Preliminaries for headerless install callback

megabytes of memory when it only really needs is nevra info to locate
the relevant yum package object.

This sounds great!

What release are you intending this to go into?  Just for master, or for
F15 as well?

Both. Like said, these patches alone don't really do anything at all visibly (unless I've screwed up something), and should actually be safe all the way to RHEL 5 (but lets leave that aside for now). I do hope to have the yum bits make it into F15 so we can then flick the switch and have anaconda magically use much, much less memory.
