    2014-05-22 - Andrea Veri <averi@fedoraproject.org> - - New upstream release.

    2014-04-14 - Andrea Veri <averi@fedoraproject.org> - 1.0.4-1.20140414git90159ff - New upstream release. Rebased from https://github.com/crook/yum-axelget.

    2014-04-08 - Andrea Veri <averi@fedoraproject.org> - 0.2-5.20140407svn14 - Add a define for the /usr/lib/yum-plugins directory to avoid hardcoding it. - Adjust the changelog release numbers.

    2014-04-07 - Andrea Veri <averi@fedoraproject.org> - 0.2-4.20140407svn14 - Presto's API was moved to Yum itself since Fedora 18. Upstream has just ported yum-axelget's code to cope with that. Also remove any reference to EPEL, we won't branch this package to any EL branch for now to not keep the old sources around at all. (EL7 might be a first good target though given it makes use of a newer Yum than the one in EPEL 5/6)

    2013-10-02 - Andrea Veri <averi@fedoraproject.org> - 0.2-3.20130621svn12 - Added the full path to the axelget.py file. - Removed the wildcard from the python_sitelib folder for the package to not gain the wrong ownership on the files hosted there. - Added a doc statement and included the README and LICENSE file. - Removed the python_sitelib definition. It shouldn't be needed.

    2013-06-21 - Andrea Veri <averi@fedoraproject.org> - 0.2-2.20130621svn12 - Improved the summary and description fields. Thanks Michael Schwendt. - Add an if statement for making sure a requires is setup for yum-presto on RHEL systems. Fedora merged yum-presto into yum itself lately.
