User-Agent: Mozilla/4.0 (compatible; MSIE 6.0; Windows NT 5.0)

Description of problem:
While I understand that up2date -u may not work during rush hour for free 
service users, I think up2date -p should. If I happen to download those updated 
packages manually and then would like to tell you about it, you should allow it.

It helps you too, you don't need send me email about security flaw which I 
don't need anymore. In large scale should lower your e-mail server load too.

Version-Release number of selected component (if applicable):

How reproducible:

Steps to Reproduce:
1. Something breaks.
2. Red Hat releases errata.
3. RHN is blocked.
4. I download package manually.
5. I would like to tell you that I have upgraded, but you won't let me do it.

I guess RHEL users care about this more...

This needs server changes, deferring until we can roll out
the next gen of servers.
