Description of problem:
The updates libxml2-2.6.16-3 for FC3 and libxml2-2.6.16-2 for FC2
share the same advisory id FEDORA-2004-407. Every other FC update had
a separate advisory id if it was released for more than one FC version.

Version-Release number of selected component (if applicable):

How reproducible:

Steps to Reproduce:
1. look at the two FEDORA-2004-407 update announcements

Additional info:

Comment 1 Daniel Veillard 2004-11-30 17:29:43 UTC
It is the same code base. The number is 407 for DC3 and 408 for FC3.
It's a stupid typo, it's not fixable, it should be harmless.


Comment 2 Bernd Bartmann 2004-11-30 19:53:23 UTC
I guess this should read 407 is for FC2 and 408 is for FC3?

Comment 3 Daniel Veillard 2004-11-30 22:08:25 UTC
ouch :-) Yes
How much of a pain is it ? I don't really see the need to do something.
I forgot to upgrade the update number as I generated the second 


Comment 4 Bernd Bartmann 2004-11-30 22:26:53 UTC
This is certainly not a major problem. I'm maintaining my own database
of all the update announcements and just want to make sure that
everything is correct.

For me what's still lacking is a central place where all these
annoucemnet are kept (like e.g.
https://rhn.redhat.com/errata/rhel3es-errata.html for RHES3).

There are still several updates that already appeared on the download
mirrors but were never announced on fedora-announce-list.

I try to get more attention from the package maintainers inside Red
Hat on this problem so I've created some tracker bugs on missing
update announcements:
FC1: 141259
FC2: 141258
FC3: 141256

What I'd really like to see is a central final instance (person) that
does some simple QA (md5sum checking, testing if update install is
successful, id checking) before the announcements go out to
fedora-announce-list. Also all announcements should be gpg signed
using a central key from Fedora or Red Hat.

I've already posted an RFE on this topic to fedora-devel-list when FC1
came out.

Your help to get this topic dicussed inside Red Hat would be much

But I think Bugzilla is the wrong for a discussion. So please make any
comments as answers to my "Missing update announcement" thread on

Anyway, thanks Daniel for the missing information.
