Red Hat Bugzilla – Bug 171328
Remove extraneous whitespace lines in rhn-applet message

"services that keep your system secure and supported.\n"
There should be no need whatsoever to have several lines of useless whitespace
cluttering up this message for translators.
Please remove the whitespace, replacing the occurances of
\n" with a simple "\n".
Also, please consider using automatic line wrapping as explained in bug 171327,
and also please consider removing the stray newline at the end. Thank you.
rhn-applet was replaced by pirut and put (package pirut) as of FC5. Only FC5
and FC6 are currently fully supported; FC3 and FC4 are supported for security
fixes only. If this bug occurs in FC3 or FC4 and is a security bug, please
change the product to Fedora Extras and the version to match. If you can verify
that the bug exists in RHEL as well, please change the product and version
The codebase for pirut and pup is quite different, but if a similar bug exists
in pirut and pup in FC5 or FC6, please change the product to pirut and the
version appropriately and update the bug report.
We apologize that the bug was not fixed before now. The status will be changed
to NEEDINFO, and if the bug is not updated with evidence that it is a security
bug or a bug that affects RHEL, it will be closed.
Note that rhn-applet may still be present on upgraded systems, and in general
will not function correctly on such systems. That is not a bug; anaconda does
not generally erase removed packages upon upgrades.
Closing per previous comment.
