Something to consider for the wishlist.... "yum about" ... would maybe give
output of "uname -a" along with "rpm -q yum" and "rpm -q rpm", as well as
any other tidbits that are commonly of interest when debugging yum issues.
People tend to be lazy, and rolling up everything into one command would
certainly give people less excuses to be lazy when reporting problems.
