Description of problem:
Needs more detailed explanation about package selection mechanism of update-minimum command with '--advisory' option to update by a specific advisory for customer who's seriously concerned about security issue and minimal changes on the systems
Version-Release number of selected component (if applicable):
RHEL6 and 7
Steps to Reproduce:
1. Check manpage , yum-security
No detailed explanation about how minimal-updates works.
We need detailed explanation about how minimal-updates works for customer who's seriously concerned about security issue and minimal changes on the systems to be able to plan/prepare about upgrading.
Though we can see upstream commit log said (http://yum.baseurl.org/gitweb?p=yum-utils.git;a=commit;h=a5c7a3011bb9d2497c980791111389d226445281), we don't have yum-plugin-security as a part of yum-utils packages anymore, so we cannot find it in Git tree ( http://yum.baseurl.org/gitweb?p=yum-utils.git;a=tree;f=plugins/security ), but RHEL7 and 6 customer will use this plugin for a while, so we need explicit description about behavior of update-minimal with '--advisory' or other options.
We prepared https://access.redhat.com/solutions/220033 ,but customer want to have more accurate and detailed description about behaviour.
