Hi,

I have noticed that the dependency resolution stage of yum can be 
painfully slow.  To give an example, I am running yum 2.0.4 on redhat 9 
and "yum install xine" has been at that stage for several minutes now 
with the CPU at near 100 percent utilisation.  It seems to me, perhaps 
naively, that using the correct data structure and caching this should 
take no more than a second or two.  As a result I would like to offer to 
help redesign the algorithm used.  So what I really need is some 
technical information about what is required and who I should be in 
touch with.

Kind regards,
Raphael
