[IRC] meetings without prior communication often are a waste of time.

https://fedoraproject.org/wiki/QA  explicitly points at this list, so
that's what I used for my comments.

What I see on
 https://fedorahosted.org/pipermail/autoqa-results/2009-August/date.html
in the "repoclosure" reports is many false positives.
Stock repoclosure from yum-utils does not implement anything that
evaluates Obsoletes tags.

The "conflicts" reports look much more promising. At least I recognise
several of the conflicts. I think I will compare some of them with the
output of my old i386 script,
  http://mschwendt.fedorapeople.org/confcheck-remote-split2.py 
or take a look at the source code to find out whether we can focus
on one implementation.

Sometimes packagers create conflicts deliberately (by pushing a partial
set of upgrades) and are annoyed if they receive [semi-]automated bug
reports in bugzilla. Several of the found issues have been reported in
bugzilla a long time ago. Just finding the conflicts is mostly fruitless
as long as packagers need not fix them.
