Using up2date to automatically retrieve but _not_ install packages,
we would like to be able 
to configure the client to send (for example)
an email notification of the presence of an 
updated package that
warrants consideration for installation.
Comment 1 Axoria Ltd 2003-01-15 04:54:38 EST
I have since realised that configuring my machines to retrieveOnly, keepAfterInstall and noBootLoader (everything else left as defaults) then no download happens automatically at all. What I'm really seeking is for some machines to be completely automatic (okay, that works), and for other machines to automatically retrieve packages, but notify me to manually install them. That latter arrangement appears to neither happen nor be possible using the current system as far as I can see. (I could set up a cron-job to do an up2date --nox --update which would honour the config file and just download the packages, but I'd rather rhnsd was doing it all instead.)
