[RFE] command line option to pass uuid from panel applet
Last modified: 2015-01-07 18:55:45 EST
The applet has a uuid for each installation. It would be nice to report
upstream this uuid when a user launches up2date from the applet. Likewise, if
we could ddo the same with rhn_register, we can measure the registration drive
from the applet.
ahh, about time... only few days before freeze...
rhn_register changes sound useful. Well, not really
useful, but acceptable.
I dont really see any point in adding it to up2date itself though.
also, whats the desired behaviour is uuid's collide? (it's
potentically a user selected value...)
first pass in 2.7.11 rhn_register
if uuid's collide, we ignore it and move on; we really don't care, it's just
having it for up2date is useful because it lets us know if people are using it
through the applet or not. more demographics == better. rhn_register is the
more important of the two, though.
where can I get rpms to test it?
