Latest yum work for 0.10.4


#1

Thanks to some feedback from various users who tried out the revised
yum provider in master I was able to address a number of issues.
Looking for merging of the following prior to 0.10.4:

which closes the following tickets:

  • CHEF-2428 - yum provider raises an exception when asked to remove an
    uninstalled package
  • CHEF-2429 - yum provider - remote provides loaded for :remove and :purge
  • CHEF-2432 - yum-dump - provides broken on centos 4
  • CHEF-2444 - yum provider - yum-dump.py broken with older versions of yum
  • CHEF-2449 - yum provider - slow parsing of yum-dump output

CHEF-2449 was especially bad for users with large yum repos - client
runs would take an extremely long time to finish.
