      Description

      When the yum package_module modifies the system by installing a local package it uses RPM directly.

      I think it would make more sense to use yum for all modifications to packages.

      • For local packages because dependencies will be automatically installed if they are available.
      • To prevent unnecessary warnings when rpm and yum are both used on a system. If packages are modified by rpm the next time yum is run it will warn about the database being modified externally.
      • To do the expected thing. The package module is named yum, so it makes sense that only yum would be used to modify the system.
