Description Aleksey Nogin 2002-07-21 14:23:12 EDT
It appears that if a system contains an obsoleted package, RHN Website would not
lits it as an outdate package and would not count it as an outdated package (and
might show the system as fully updated). 

To reproduce:
create a fully-updated Limbo system and then replace redhat-config-date with
dateconfig (and run up2date -p, obviously). RHN appears to think the system is
still fully updated, but it's wrong.

P.S. up2date hanldes this correctly, only RHN Web site gets it wrong.
