Description Fred Bacon 2003-01-07 15:13:51 UTC

Description of problem:
When checking the errata for a system, two buttons appear on the left hand side.
 One says "Update" the other says "Select All".  On the right hand side is a
button saying "Apply Errata".  Since a user is attempting
to update their system, the natural behavior would be for them to click on the
"Update" button to complete the action.  This is particularly true for cultures
where reading is from left to right.  You see the "Update" button long before
you see the "Apply Errata" button.  I believe that the button currently labeled
"Update" would be more appropriately labeled as "Refresh", since this is the
intended behavior.

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

How reproducible:

Steps to Reproduce:
1.Go to list of systems.
2.Select a system with errata available.
3.Click on the Errata tab.

I see the button name has been changed to "Update List" instead of just
"Update".  I agree that "Refresh" would be more meaningful for this particular
page, but it would be confusing because all other RHN pages use "Update List" as
