This is my first try to write something useful using python .. so, please tell me if something not right with this plugin ..

This plugin add a retry download functionality to yum when download errors happen. Those that got a fast and stable internet seldom get download timeout/checksum/no more mirrors error, but theres a lot of ppl in 3rd world n developing countries have slow/unstable internet and timeouts sometimes occurs too frequently. I wrote this plugin to make yum retry downloading for a few more times before die.
