 You could try using --skip-broken to work around the problem
 You could try running: package-cleanup --problems
                        package-cleanup --dupes
                        rpm -Va --nofiles --nodigest

Subject: updates repo admission checklist hole

Hi ,

I think there is a hole in QA process that allows untested packages to get into the update repo.
I may be wrong as well but at least please look into this:

https://bugzilla.redhat.com/show_bug.cgi?id=508517 

as this is a case where a broken package pollute the updates repository.

I am referring about current state of synce-hal package as reported by yum :

$yum list synce-hal
Loaded plugins: refresh-packagekit
Available Packages
synce-hal.x86_64                                       0.13.1-3.fc10                                        updates


PS:  I find here a policy described: http://fedoraproject.org/wiki/PackageSubmissionQAPolicy
but there is no detailed QA Check list , can someone help me with some pointers to follow for more details?

Thanks, Andrei.
