yum whatprovides?

Hi Klaatu,

what's more bothersome about `sudo yum whatprovides *bin/semanage` than searching for all the SELinux packages and installing them to maybe get the right tool installed? That's a feature a _really_ like about yum. And no need to jump through hoops like installing `apt-file` and updating its database necessary.

This is the best description of ssh public/private keys that I have encountered.

Re: yum whatprovides?

I somehow missed this comment until the monthly show read it aloud.

Agreed, Frank. yum (and dnf, now) really is a great interface to packages. I have found zypper in openSUSE to be pretty neat, too.
