Description Russell Coker 2006-09-22 01:19:30 UTC
I am working in an environment where running up2date on a server requires a change window. The window might start at 8PM, so I run "up2date -u" and then after 10 minutes of downloading packages and 5 minutes of creating rollback packages the installation will start, thus wasting 15 minutes of my window. I would like to run up2date an hour before the window, have it perform it's non-invasive operations (creating rollback packages and downloading the new packages) and then ask "would you like to install the new packages [y/N]?". This would save 15 minutes of the change window and allow the testing to begin 15 minutes earlier.
