Re: yum installation management.

I guess i wasn't being really clear. It would be something that individuals would run an their own infrastructure. Hence, my original post is slightly off topic, because it would work with any yum setup, not just the use fedora legacy project.

Like lots of users out there, my company used to use Red Hat Network to
support our boxes. One of the things i really liked about RHN was
that you could remotely administer a bunch of servers fairly easily
without having to log onto each machine to check for updates or to
install updates. I'm aware that Yum and others packages can be run
from cron to automatically install packages. However, if you want a
little bit more control over what you install and when you install
them, I haven't seen something out there that suits me.

I spent some time whipping up a little system that is similar to RHN.
The administration is from a web page where you can  view which
components on your servers are out of date and request that the
remotely administered systems update certain packages.   Each of the
remotely administered systems checks in with the central database and
updates packages that it's been requested to update.  The administered
boxes also notify the central server when if finds new packages that
should be updated.

If someone wants to run that in their infrastructure that's fine but I don't think fedoralegacy has the machine power or human power to maintain something like that.
