Re: RHupdates and http?



Ed,

The idea used to be that Red Hat wouldn't need to truly re-spin all the
CDs... they would just add the updated packages to the RHupdates
directory, and only re-make the first CD.  That worked for a while until
the first CDs of a given quarterly update became too large.  Apparently
that functionality has disappeared, and we non-Red Hatters are just now
finding out about it.
