Description David Jericho 2005-02-14 02:36:44 UTC
From Bugzilla Helper:
User-Agent: Mozilla/5.0 (Windows; U; Windows NT 5.1; en-US; rv:1.7.5) Gecko/20041107 Firefox/1.0

Description of problem:
We have a significant number of RHEL entitlements, but for reasons I won't elaborate on, management isn't done through the RHN. Package management is all done from a central config and image system.

RHN errata mailouts are handy, but it would be nice if I could automate the collection of errata with some form of RSS or Atom feed.

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

How reproducible:
Couldn't Reproduce

Steps to Reproduce:
No steps to involved.

Expected Results:  An RSS feed, accessed via RHN with username and password, with direct links contained within for all errata for permitted channels, or even just channel based RSS feeds. 

Something akin to https://username:password@rhn.redhat.com/rhel3ws-errata.rss to list all RHEL 3 Workstation errata, and slurp the direct links for the relevant rpms directly.

There is https://rhn.redhat.com/rpc/recent-errata.pxt

About the downloadable RPM links: it is our policy to expose only timebombed download URLs with a reasonably short TTL (10 minutes) and only on authenticated pages.
