yum-debug-dump is a program which creates a gzipped file containing a
lot of information useful to developers trying to debug a problem.
By default it will output a file to the current working directory
named yum_debug_dump-<hostname>-<time>.txt.gz. This file contains no
private information but does contain a complete list of all packages
you have installed, all packages available in any repository,
important configuration and system information. You can view this
file using the 'zless' command.
You can use the coresponding program yum-debug-restore to act on this
file and restore a set of packages (much like dump/restore).
As yum-debug-dump uses YUM libraries for retrieving all the
information, it relies on YUM configuration for its default values
like which repositories to use. Consult YUM documentation for
