Red Hat Bugzilla – Bug 202433
Major release update notification
Last modified: 2017-04-13 08:45:09 EDT
Description of problem:
When a major release is done, like RHEL4 U4 last week, customers get a slow
trickle of e-mail over a period of days for each package in the release.
For example, here is the e-mail count I've gotten so far:
8/10 - 2
8/11 - 3
8/12 - 8
8/13 - 7
8/14 - 1
This release has 80-ish updates which means that I've barely received any of the
A few questions/suggestions:
1. Can RHN be configured to send out ONE e-mail alerting users to a new RHEL
update (with a link to all the individual notices)?
2. Or can all the updates be rolled into ONE e-mail (e.g. digest form)?
3. Or at least can the e-mails all be sent out at once? I get a new Errata
e-mail trickling in any time between 30 minutes and 5 hours.
I can understand separate e-mails for the security updates, that's fine. I
probably want the CVE numbers anyway.
