Well, I would like to know what will be the changes before we apply the updates.* I would like to generate a kind of a report showing what will be the changes for all packages with available updates.

Is there a way to do it?


Thanks
Bernard

1) Please don't top post

2) Take a look at the yum changelog plugin. You could make use of yum
list updates and then parse that and grab the changelogs via yum
changelog and then mail that etc etc

The way to do that would be to use the yum-security plugin, however we
dont publish information needed to make it work ( mostly due to legal
reasons on where that data comes from, how its parsed and pushed out ).

There are 2 things that are being worked on : the spacewalk community
has scripts that will parse this info from within packages and present
it in a usable state. And secondly, I've been working on a yaml based
script that can do something similar and hope to have it in a usable
state soon ( for where soon ~ a month or so ).

The other option you have, if you fancy a bit of code writing, is to use
the yum-changelog plugin to parse what comes through the package
manifests and make decisions on things that way - keep in mind that its
a maze and you will need some level of smartness. Its not as drastic an
issue on CentOS as it can get in other distro's but its still something
you will need to handle ( eg. not all SA's are relevant without a BA or
an EA released in the past ).

Please do not top-post.

Every repository should have /repodata folder with tar.gz-ed xml files.
Part of the "other.xml" file is changelog for each package. You can
use that data to find what you need.
