I think this has gone a little too far. I'm sorry that I asked such a
personal question (I was looking for an examle yum.conf file that was
up-to-date for FC4) at the end of the week when everybody is stressed.

So I retract the question. I have seen a lot of bad things written
about Dag and about linva and I will decide which is the lesser evil,
and populate my yum.conf accordingly. Please, if anybody else wants to
get upset, then get upset over the train wreck this week. Or something
else. But don't get upset over a noobie's question as to what repro he
should add to yum.conf. I assure you that nobody has yet been injured
over my choice or repro. Let's keep it that way.

Oh yeah, and if anybody is just looking for a flame war, then they
could explain to me the merits of Emacs over VIM.

Just kidding. Really. I am happy with Kedit and it so far hasn't upset anybody

Next time I need abvice from the sort "which is better" I think that
I'll just email Alexander Dalloz or Paul Howarth or Rychard Lynch
