Description Brent Fox 2004-08-13 10:11:48 EDT
In the "Software Channel Overview" page, I'm looking for the channel
for RHEL 3 Update 3 Beta.  After asking around on #rhn, I found out
that the "Red Hat Enterprise Linux AS (v.3 for x86) Beta" channel is
the RHEL 3 U3 Beta channel.  The current name made me think that it
was a channel for one of the early Taroon betas.

The reason I ask for this is because I have some customers who want to
get some of the RHEL Update packages before they are officially
released.  However, the name of the channel doesn't tell them anything
about what that "Beta" represents.  Is it an old Taroon (pre-Gold)
beta?  Is it an Update 2 Beta?  

Can we get the channel name changed to be more descriptive of what it

Good point - over to jadb to look into this yucky naming.
