Description Dag Wieers 2005-03-18 17:53:03 UTC

Description of problem:
I guess it would benefit everyone (Red Hat, users, me) if up2date had an option (maybe enabled by default) to protect it's own/core packages. Ie. prefer RHN packages over 3rd party packages.

I guess it would make sense to have this by default since it could prevent support calls to Red Hat about something that is caused by 3rd party packages.

I try to keep the number of replaced packages down, but a switch like this could allow me to offer more packages and leave it up to the user whether to use the official package or the 3rd party package.

This in itself will lead to a better understanding what packages are not Red Hat's (and by consequence excluded from support).
