[Yum] yumdownloader doesn't download dependencies [bug-maybe]

Hi, I am using yum in a python script to download rpms for an offline
install (packstack).

In theory using "yumdownloader" with --resolve should download all
dependencies but it doesn't (I get dependency error)

​But there is a work around: I can use "yum install" with --downloadonly​ &
--installroot options to successfully download all dependencies.

PS: This workaround was reported by a user on stackoverflow:
