Patch to implement behavior
Description of problem: I've got a large number of workstations that all have yum-cron enabled for package installation. I don't care if they installed the updates successfully - but I do care if they didn't.
I've attached a patch to allow you to only report errors with yum-cron
Version-Release number of selected component (if applicable): 3.4.3-106.fc19
How reproducible: 100%
Steps to Reproduce:
1. run yum-cron on a system where it errors
2. run yum-cron on a system where it succeeds
3. wish you could only get reports from #1
reporting always occurs
The ability to trim down what it reports to just systems with errors
A patch to add this behavior is attached.
I've already written something similar, but this gets rid of more messages, and correctly handles the self.output== case, so I like it. Do you think that adding an extra option is better than just honoring the loglevel settings?
Using loglevel for this seems great to me! Just need to make sure that the reduction in reporting is well documented so everyone knows how to get this behavior.
Just checking back in, log_level seems like the right direction for this. Any hope of getting your patches at : http://lists.baseurl.org/pipermail/yum-devel/2013-August/010334.html merged?
This message is a notice that Fedora 19 is now at end of life. Fedora
has stopped maintaining and issuing updates for Fedora 19. It is

of Fedora, you are encouraged change the 'version' to a later Fedora
version prior this bug is closed as described in the policy above.
Although we aim to fix as many bugs as possible during every release's
lifetime, sometimes those efforts are overtaken by events. Often a
more recent Fedora release includes newer upstream software that fixes
bugs or makes them obsolete.
Fedora 19 changed to end-of-life (EOL) status on 2015-01-06. Fedora 19 is
no longer maintained, which means that it will not receive any further
security or bug fix updates. As a result we are closing this bug.

Fedora please feel free to reopen this bug against that version. If you
are unable to reopen this bug, please file a new report against the
