Description Mike Loseke 2010-05-28 18:55:29 EDT
Description of problem:

  yum-updatesd (/usr/libexec/yum-updatesd-helper) says "packets" instead of "packages" when it emails about updates.  

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


How reproducible:

  Let yum-updatesd update some packages, check the email sent.  I would like to think that it's updating "packages" rather than "packets". :)
Actual results:

  Subject: yum: 5 packets installed/updated (on hostname)

Expected results:

  Subject: yum: 5 packages installed/updated (on hostname)

Line 225 in /usr/libexec/yum-updatesd-helper is:
        self._sendMessage("%d packets installed/updated" % num, output)

so a simple fix could be:

  sed -i 's/packets/packages/' yum-updatesd-helper
