Description raya 1999-10-31 15:13:38 UTC
When I run the update agent, it generates a list that
appears to be all the packages I DON'T have installed
including new versions of installed packages. This is
not very helpful.

Wouldn't it be better to have update agent show just the
packages that are newer than the ones that are installed?

this has been fixed in an upcoming Update Agent errata.
