I tried this, and I get:

No such schema 'org.gnome.wm.preferences'

I suspect that's related to why the xml file doesn't work.

Do you mean that if you issue "yum whatprovides vlc and then a few minutes later
issue "yum whatprovides gimp" the download occurs again?

Re: yum downloading its indexes all the time is a major PITA


I think it's configurable somewhere and the default is every 90 min.

I have my system installed from the minimal iso and I noticed yum doesn't seem to have this behaviour so maybe it's one of its plugins the culprit?

Not sure if 'a few minutes' but I do remember yum installing something else in the morning, and when I did a yum whatprovides on the afternoon, it downloaded again.

This is a major time waster. For starters, if I do a "yum (any operation other than install)" then nothing will break if the updating of repo indexes is SKIPPED ALTOGETHER.

That sounds like the right way to do things.

However, I looked at /etc/yum.conf and found nothing that resembles that.

AIUI, that fee isn't to get your arbitrary boot loader signed, it's to 
*gain access* to the certification process.  Presumably you still have 
to have your code audited to make sure that it does what it says it does 
and only what it says it does.  Still, I'd be a lot happier if the 
certification were done by a neutral third-party instead of by a 
corporation with the anti-competitive reputation that MS has.

sometimes it is a good idea to read manuals!

"metadata_expire" is your friend and after that "yum clean metadata"
if you want to force the search for updates

http://linux.die.net/man/5/yum.conf

keepcache Either '1' or '0'.
Determines whether or not yum keeps the cache of headers and packages after successful installation.

metadata_expire Time (in seconds) after which the metadata will expire.
So that if the current metadata downloaded is less than this many seconds
old then yum will not update the metadata against the repository.

    Yup, they are wrong. They left forgot to mention the Brief

Some places to search:

If the culprit is a yum plugin:
the yum plugins are located at
/var/lib/yum/plugins
and
/usr/share/yum-plugins

See
yum-plugin-allow-downgrade = 1.1.22-0.yum
yum-plugin-basearchonly = 1.1.9.yum
yum-plugin-protect-packages = 1.1.27-0.yum
yum-protect-packages = 1.1.27-0.yum


The yum python modules are located here:
/usr/lib/python2.7/site-packages/rpmUtils/
and
/usr/share/yum-cli/
