Description of problem:
Section 1.7 'Before You Begin' should really start with the text from
Version-Release number of selected component (if applicable):
Actual Results: If the user has a version of up2date that includes old
certificates, (s)he will never be able to register the system.
Expected Results: The contents of
https://rhn.redhat.com/help/latest-up2date.pxt (or at least a pointer
to the URL and describing which are the earliest versions that will
work at the time of writing the manual) rigth at the start of section 1.7
Additional info: While we do point out that
http://www.redhat.com/errata/ should be checkd, IMHO we should very
clearly point out to the user that he has to have a minimum version of
up2date to be able to register.
This makes sense to me. Accepting, aligning to the next (3.3.0)
release, marking customer facing, and blocking the 330 doc tracking bug.
I've added a prominent Warning at the beginning of this section
explaining the SSL certificate expiration and pointing users to the
RHN Software page to compare and perhaps obtain new versions.
Done a long time ago. Closing.
