Description of problem:
During selection of available packages there is a button to show
(security) advisories (View advisory). If there is no advisory
available for the package the button returns a popup window with "No
advisory information available.".

I think it is more natural to make the button inactive whenever there
is no advisory available. This should be quite easy to implement and
saves the user a lot of time.

Does up2date even support displaying advisories when updating from yum
or apt?

I would hope so, as otherwise how would I know what I'm being asked to

E.g. when a kernel update appears is it due to a local or remote
security problem? - if is local I might not bother, but if its a
remote vunerability then I definitely want to install it. Without the
advisory information its hard to make that choice.
Comment 2 Adrian Likins 2004-01-05 12:27:59 EST
up2date does not support showing advisories when updating from
yum or apt since yum/apt repos dont include any information
about advisories.
