Hi Folks,
 Yum 3.2.12 is out and available:

notable items:
- installed_object.verify() works much like and/or better than rpm -Va
does now and enables the yum-verify plugin
- a number of memory saving improvements
- speed ups in handling of excludes
- for both of the ia64 users it is now enabled again!
- when depsolving we've added a number of heuristics to pick the right
provider from a list of providers. A couple of the heuristics include:
    - see if the sourcerpm of the providing and the requiring packages 
      is the same
    - see if the most characters of the package name lead match. This 
      helps with cases like both totem-lirc and xmms-lirc providing the 
      library for totem-debuginfo.
- write method for the comps object in yum to write out a compliant 
  comps xml file based on the imported comps files.

A good sized set of depsolving improvements, translation updates and
general bugfixes.

See the changelog for full details:



let us know what breaks,
