Well, on rawhide there is always something broken:(
So no update ever ?

Say you have an experimental repo in your setup, it only has to break
to  stop all security updates ? (even on a stupid error like the artwork
one ?)

Hey, I know and I respect that. Why do you think I'm spending a lot of
*my* time to learn to use yet another update manager ? I knew yum
wouldn't like rawhide, but yum is the single free  update manager
rawhide supports now, so...

I don't expect yum to do miracles and update when dependencies are not
satisfied. Blocking on unrelated packages dep errors OTOH is a bit
excessive IMHO.

But again, you are free to disagree:)
