Red Hat Bugzilla – Bug 439729
Last modified: 2013-03-13 01:43:05 EDT
Description of problem:
Software update preferences doesn't have the option I would really like which is
to automatically download everything but confirm before installing
Additional one would be the ability to pick between installing automatically
security, both security and bug fixes. Probably a series of checkboxes:
 Security Fixes
 Bug Fixes
I thought of the three checkboxes idea too, but would there ever be a situation
where you would want bugfixes but not security updates?
Very unlikely. Atleast I can't think of any. The likely options users would want is
1) Just security fixes
2) Both security and bug fixes
I've sent a mail to the list, can you folow up there pls.
Changing version to '9' as part of upcoming Fedora 9 GA.
More information and reason for this action is here:
I've asked the interaction people at Red Hat and they seem to think the options
we have now are okay. Adding more prefs increases the code paths substantially,
and I really want to concentrate on fixing all the existing bugs and use cases.
