Red Hat Bugzilla – Bug 159546
Packages count for Solaris systems in SystemList incorrect
Last modified: 2011-06-20 15:55:34 EDT
This package count appears to include patches and patch sets. I'm not sure if
that's the cause of the problem, but I do know the count is incorrect.
Robin, close this if it's not a bug.
There is ongoing debate about how to handle this. Stay tuned.
It sounds like this is the plan:
Change the 'Errata' and 'Packages' columns to a single 'Updates' column.
For linux systems, the format will be: packages/errata
For a solaris system: Packages/Patches/Patch Sets
Also, provide a tooltip for each link explaining what it is linking to.

A suggestion for how the updates column could be made clearer with icons in the system list
new Sol component created/QA contact should be mspevack if not already
MÃ¡irÃn, could it also display a exclamation mark in the column status ?

Hi Oliver, I don't think an exclamation mark in the status column would be
appropriate if there are patches or patch sets available for a Solaris system
since this is commonly a desired state. However, I agree that the mockup in
comment 5 is misleading in that the Linux systems that have packages/errata
available should have an exclamation mark displayed.
