> Hi all,
> We have added yum 2.4.3 updates for CentOS 3 and 4 to the CentOS
> testing repository. These packages introduce the following changes:
> * CentOS 4: yum now requires the yum-metadata-parser package. This is a
>   backport of the yum C metadata parser, and provides an significant
>   performance increase over the Python metadata parser.
> * CentOS 3: this is the first release of yum 2.4 for CentOS 3, and we
>   plan to provide this as an optional upgrade through the CentOSPlus
>   repository. We have added code to yum 2.4 for default kernel handling
>   (as setting the default kernel after kernel updates was handled by yum
>   2.0). Additionally, the package also requires the yum C metadata
>   parser.

any plans to pronounce both packages production safe and move to Centos
