Re: Anaconda threads and Yum with rpm backend

Ouch.  Well, I would definitely prefer this to be fixed outside of
anaconda.  However, realistically we're probably stuck for F18.  So I
guess no matter what happens in the future, we've got to come up with
something for now.

My answer largely depends on the answer to this question:  What's the
last thing happening in the anaconda packaging thread before the chroot
happens?  I'm trying to get some idea of how much communication takes
place between the packaging thread and others.  If it's not much, we're
in luck.  If it's a lot, we're in trouble.
