So do these lines do nothing anyway? B/c I'm a little fuzzy on how that patch fixes things.

Comment 2 Colin Walters 2008-12-18 14:58:56 UTC
They something, but more than we want (detailed in the bug report).  Removing them is safe because they are redundant with the send_destination rule.

(Yes, the policy language is confusing as hell and basically busted; I'm just trying to get everything on a common sane base and then am considering doing a new config format)

Comment 3 Colin Walters 2008-12-18 14:59:12 UTC
s/They something/They do do something/

Comment 4 James Antill 2009-01-14 15:39:19 UTC
Not sure how much we care about this, given no sane person should be using that version of yum-updatesd ... Colin do we want another BZ for the real yum-updatesd?

Comment 5 Colin Walters 2009-01-15 15:21:37 UTC
The real one?  Oh, I see it's in a different package.  I'll just move this one.

Comment 6 Jeremy Katz 2009-01-15 23:17:53 UTC
Fixed upstream
