Description William Henry 2008-07-01 15:18:54 EDT
Description of problem:

A link on in section "1.3. Available Packages — RPM" points to a repo and this
repo has out of date packages.

Version-Release number of selected component (if applicable):
1.0

How reproducible:

Go to the installation guide section 1.3:

http://www.redhat.com/docs/en-US/Red_Hat_Enterprise_MRG/1.0/html/Messaging_Installation_Guide/sect-Messaging_Installation_Guide-Installing_RHM-Available_Packages_mdash_RPM.html

and select the "repository for MRG Messaging" link:

http://rhm.et.redhat.com/download/

Expected results:

I don't think there should be any link to a repo here. It bypasses the RHN.

We had a customer download MRG messaging this way.

Probably remove the link or have a static list of packages with no download
capability.

Hi William,

Does this warrant a respin of the live docs at
http://www.redhat.com/docs/en-US/Red_Hat_Enterprise_MRG/ ?

Cheers,
Lana
