May have a solution to that for you. Panu worked up a script using the
xml metadata to be able to do simple queries of the metadata like you
would with rpm -q
Except that where does the changelog info get into the metadata? The
packages, so if the info is removed from the packages... oops. :) Of
course the changelog metada could be generated from cvs or such.
repoquery --changelog yum
worked for me.
Oh well, since you advertised it publically I guess I could just as well
make the blasted thing available finally :) It haven't touched it in
quite a while but what little is there seems to still work:
Note that you need to run "yum makecache" first for it to work (and
without that you'd grow old waiting anyway)
