Doc Text:
_cockpit_ rebased to version 154 The _cockpit_ packages, which provide the *Cockpit* browser-based administration console, have been upgraded to version 154. This version provides a number of bug fixes and enhancements. Notable changes include: * The `Accounts` page now enables the configuration of account locking and password expiry. * Load graphs consistently ignore loopback traffic on all networks. * *Cockpit* provides information about unmet conditions for *systemd* services. * Newly created timers on the `Services` page are now started and enabled automatically. * It is possible to dynamically resize the terminal window to use all available space. * Various navigation and JavaScript errors with Internet Explorer have been fixed. * *Cockpit* uses Self-Signed Certificate Generator (SSCG) to generate SSL certificates, if available. * Loading SSH keys from arbitrary paths is now supported. * Absent or invalid `/etc/os-release` files are now handled gracefully. * Unprivileged users now cannot use the shutdown/reboot button on the `System` page. Note that certain _cockpit_ packages are available in the Red Hat Enterprise Linux 7 Extras channel; see https://access.redhat.com/support/policy/updates/extras.

Description Dominik Perpeet 2017-07-13 12:09:38 EDT
There are feature and change requests that Cockpit will address in RHEL 7.5 that would incur a significant number of patches. To make maintenance palatable, Cockpit should be rebased in 7.5. The stable API promise by Cockpit to its plugins is not affected by this.

Affected packages in RHEL Base:
cockpit (metapackage)
cockpit-bridge
cockpit-system
cockpit-ws
