Description Daniel McNamara 2006-09-18 01:02:29 EDT
Description of problem: Given that up2date has now been replaced by a a yum rhn plugin can I suggest that an up2date wrapper script be provided - just something that can do a majority of the functions that up2date did only it wraps around the new mehod. This will reduce confusion and support overhead once the product is released. Additionally a nice tool to edit the rhn options (other than manually editing /etc/sysconfig/rhn/up2date) no longer seems to be available. Again a replacement for up2date --configure would be handy in reducing confusion and support overhead in final release. Version-Release number of selected component (if applicable): How reproducible: Steps to Reproduce: 1. 2. 3. Actual results: Expected results: Additional info:

Comment 3 Bret McMillan 2006-10-02 11:15:32 EDT
Development resources have been totally sucked in by the last-minute rhn_register requirements. This is certainly something we would have liked to have, but won't be there in time for beta2. If someone has something they think is shippable, we'd be glad to review it and possibly include it in the rpms, but we're out of time at this point.
Comment 4 RHEL Product and Program Management 2006-10-02 11:30:15 EDT
