Description Jason Corley 2005-09-01 14:15:23 UTC
From Bugzilla Helper:
User-Agent: Mozilla/5.0 (Macintosh; U; PPC Mac OS X Mach-O; en-US; rv:1.7.10) Gecko/20050716 Firefox/1.0.6

Description of problem:
Right now if I just want a package list from up2date (for cron/scripting purposes) I end up doing this:

up2date --list | awk ' \
  !/^$/ && \
  !/^Invalid/ && \
  !/^Fetching/ && \
  !/^Name/ && \
  !/^The/ && \
  !/^-----/ \
  {print $1}'

It'd be nice to have an option such that up2date only listed packages that need updates without all the other goop.

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


How reproducible:
Always

Steps to Reproduce:
1. Try to run up2date out of a script
2. Remove gunk
3. File RFE
