up2date offered me a large number of errata this morning. No clue _why_
most of the packages have been updated, though. The RHAT web site didn't
even seem to have them listed yet.

It would be useful for up2date to be able to display the erratum release
notes for each package which it makes available for selection.

Perhaps up2date should also know that it shouldn't upgrade from a package
which isn't the original version shipped by Red Hat? If I install a custom
version of a package (e.g. OpenSSL uncrippled, or Helix GNOME) it should be
in up2date's Skip list by default unless I explicitly request it to be
