Description Matthew Miller 2013-08-09 16:25:48 UTC
Several other major cloud guest images use motd to show that security updates are available on login. We'd like to do the same, and yum-cron seems like the sensible place to put this.

Comment 1 Zdeněk Pavlas 2013-08-12 11:10:37 UTC
Sounds reasonable. How'd you want to enable this?  "emit_via = motd"? (we already support multiple emitters) There should probably be some /etc/motd.template we put a formatted transaction info into.. Could you be more specific how this should work?

"emit_via = motd" makes sense, as does a template. Other Linux distros have a complicated motd templating system in place already. In the absence of a generalized template system, I think this should probably use a template that just belongs to yum-cron.

Taking this over to DNF as the Yum implementation is not planned.

What is dnf equivalent of yum-cron?

Explained by comment 5, thank you Tim.

I added the initial support for a motd emitter in dnf-automatic. The PR request can be found at [1].
