yum list data plugin

Synopsis

yum [options] [command] [package ...]

Description

This plugin extends yum for some commands that give aggregate package data based on lists of packages

added yum commands are:
* list-vendors
* info-vendors
* list-rpm-groups
* info-rpm-groups
* list-packagers
* info-packagers
* list-licenses
* info-licenses
* list-arches
* info-arches
* list-committers
* info-committers
* list-buildhosts
* info-buildhosts
* list-baseurls
* info-baseurls
* list-package-sizes
* info-package-sizes
* list-archive-sizes
* info-archive-sizes
* list-installed-sizes
* info-installed-sizes
* list-groups
* info-groups

all of which take the same arguments as the list and info yum commands. The difference between the list and info varieties is that the info versions lists all the packages under each aggregation.

To list all the groups that have an update, along with the number of packages in each group, use:

yum list-rpm-groups updates

To list all the committers to packages that have yum in their name, use:

yum list-committers 'yum*'
