Thank you for all the effort.

I suspect for those with slow links a list of changes
would help folks decide to do the big download promptly
or put it off to later.

Since almost all the info is in the header of the rpm,
can you post it.

For those with slow links, skip installing and downloading the works
until you have looked at the change log.  Since Dave indicated he is
making many smallish updates it may be safe enough to skip or postpone
some updates.

Might also use the download only option of up2date and go play with the kids.
Check your skip list....
   # up2date --nox  --download --update
Later inspect the results and decide...


Example....
For 1.2149.nptl
