Description William Henry 2008-07-01 19:18:54 UTC
Description of problem:

A link on in section "1.3. Available Packages — RPM" points to a repo and this
repo has out of date packages.

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

How reproducible:

Go to the installation guide section 1.3:

and select the "repository for MRG Messaging" link:

Expected results:

I don't think there should be any link to a repo here. It bypasses the RHN.

We had a customer download MRG messaging this way.

Probably remove the link or have a static list of packages with no download
