Just curious. What were you trying to do with Yum?

Here is what we are going to do. The program for which we will write a
plugin framework is Solang [1]. We will do so by using a plugin
library called libpeas [2].

Initially I would suggest that you take a look at the peas-demo
directory of libpeas and go through the example. That will give you a
basic idea of plugins and how libpeas can help you to make an
application pluggable. While doing that it would be a good idea to
learn the basics of GObject. GObject is basically a framework to help
write object-oriented code in C. The entire GNOME desktop relies on it
in one way or the other.

If you have survived this, then we can start hacking.
