Fedora Update Notification
FEDORA-2009-10541

--------------------------------------------------------------------------------

Name        : yum-cron
Product     : Fedora 11
Version     : 0.9.1
Release     : 1.fc11
URL         : http://linux.duke.edu/yum/
Summary     : Files needed to run yum updates as a cron job
Description :
These are the files needed to run yum updates as a cron job.  They
originated in yum-2.6.1-0.fc5, but were left out of FC6's yum.
Install this package if you want auto yum updates nightly via cron
rather than the newer yum-updatesd daemon.

Update Information:

Tweaks before pushing to stable, still addresses bugs 445894, 526452, 524461
- Fixed CLEANDAY default in script  - changed the /etc/yum/ scripts to not be
marked as a config file in the .spec - we always want them updated, they're code
not config.  rpmlint used to complain about them not being marked as config
files, but seems to have grown out of this weirdness in the meantime .

* Tue Oct  6 2009 Alec Habig <ahabig umn edu> - 0.9.0-1
- Change cron file to 0yum.cron, so yum updates things before the other daily jobs
  such as makewhatis, prelink, updatedb, etc run.  That way updated files get picked up
  properly.  Cost - those jobs will run later.  Resolves bug 445894.  Changed default
  random delay to 60 minutes from 120 to reduce the cost.
- Eliminate the weekly package cleaning script.  Replace with logic in the daily script 
  to clean the packages and the metadata once per week (otherwise corrupted metadata messes 
  things up indefinitely).  Resolves bug 526452.  Removal of seperate weekly script resolves
  bug 524461. 
- Use find to clear stale locks at start of run, so add findutils req.
* Fri Aug 21 2009 Alec Habig <ahabig umn edu> - 0.8.4-2
- pushing to updates-testing to resolve bug 515814, dealing with stale lockfiles
* Wed Aug  5 2009 Alec Habig <ahabig umn edu> - 0.8.4-1
- deal with stale lockdirs
