[RFE] add security commandline arg to spacewalk-clone-by-date
Last modified: 2012-11-01 12:21:56 EDT
+++ This bug was initially created as a clone of Bug #801578 +++
Looking at the list of cmdline options in the new spacewalk-clone-by-date tool, I don't see anything security-related. Is there any chance of being able to add a --security option that would apply only security errata, but would also pull in any necessary dependencies? In particular, an example I ran into was for security updates to the rhn-client-tools that required a non-security package, python-dmidecode. This would allow for creating a security-only errata clone that would have no dependency breaks when applied to the client.
