Description of problem:
Request for enhancement:
Please use ONE common format for Fedora update/errata announcements.
Until today we already got 4 different kinds of subject lines:
[SECURITY] Fedora Core 1 Update: glibc-2.3.2-101.1
Fedora Core 1 Update: epic-1.0.1-16
Fedora Update Notification: Mozilla [1.4.1-18]
Updated ethereal packages available
I would propose to use the first format listed above with the extension
to replace the prefix [SECURITY] with [BUGFIX] or [ENHANCEMENT] when
Every announcement should be GPG signed.
Also I think it would be better to put the rpm names and the md5sums
into the same line. This would increase readability alot.
And as already requested before can we please get a central web page
containing all update announcements something like
Shouldn't these announcements not also be posted at the Bugtraq and
Version-Release number of selected component (if applicable):
Steps to Reproduce:
1. compare all Fedora update announcements
This was fixed with the rollout of the update system.
