Red Hat Product Errata RHBA-2009:0195 normal SHIPPED_LIVE yum-rhn-plugin bug fix and enhancement update 2009-01-20 16:06:01 UTC

Description Martin Poole 2008-07-17 16:36:49 UTC
Description of problem:

package changes via yum-rhn-plugin are notified back to rhn/sat with a
delta_packages call listing added/removed packages.  If a package is updated the
new package and revision is added to the package profile on rhn/sat but the old
version is not removed from the profile.

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


How reproducible:


Steps to Reproduce:
1. Install system not fully updated.
2. rhn-profile-sync
3. yum update
Actual results:

updated packages will appear twice on rhn/sat

Expected results:

current packages only should be listed on rhn/sat

Additional info:

This is something about adding the outgoing packages to the "removed" list in
make_package_delta in /usr/lib/yum-plugins/

No package removals will be visible until rhn/sat has been updated to fix BZ#455759

I think that remove action is not handled as well - see Bug 445508
