gdk, can we scope this out/make it an RFE/whatever?

Comment 2 Fanny Augustin 2006-11-14 20:42:21 UTC
Reassigning  bugs from gdk (old RHN engineering Manager) to tsanders (current
RHN engineering manager)

Comment 3 Grant Gainey 2008-04-29 12:54:35 UTC
I don't know when this happened - but the current system sends out emails with
the following under "Taking Action":

You may address the issues outlined in this advisory in two ways:

     - select your server name by clicking on its name from the list
       available at the following location, and then schedule an
       errata update for it:

     - run the Update Agent on each affected server.

Looks like we did this sometime in the Distant Past.
