yumpkgs is a tool to help people download the right set of RPM packages needed to update another computer that can't download the packages itself, for whatever reason. After the packages have been downloaded, they can be transferred to the other computer by way of a flash drive or portable disc. yumpkgs produces a list (downloads.list) with a .bat script that can be run on Windows to do the downloading.

Release Notes: A new experimental feature was added that allows you to build a "downloads.list" based on which packages you need update. This is basically a "hack" that parses the output of the program "rpm" with parameters "-qa".
