I assume you mean "as long as the server has an Internet connection
to the yum repositories" ? Or did you mean "as long as the networking
subsystem is up" ?
This may be a show stopper for us, as plenty of servers won't have a
network connection to the Internet.
Then you have the yum-complete-transaction be called if and only if the
internet connection is working.
