Red Hat Bugzilla – Bug 57885
Registration for automatic updates to be done at the end of installation

Description of Problem:
Registration for automatic updating would be better to be included at the
end of the installation. Either this, or any other way insure that Red Hat
machines download updates by themselves, without user intervention.
I'm thinking mainly of computers with a permanent internet connection, and
without educated sysadmins to actually maintain them. The kind of
semiabandoned machines that run now Windows, Code SomeColour or Nimda.
I would hate to see the same shit happening on linux boxes. Yet, it does
happen, on another scale. An abandoned Red Hat box is guaranteed to be
cracked and owned by script kiddies (wuftpd). It would be much better if
the machine would take care of itself automatically.
The point is that, the way it is now, autoupdating set-up can be easily
overseen by a loosing dude who goes as a "specialist" to install it at a
friend's or something.
unfortunately we have to ask the user to agree to the terms of service nd review
