I’ll admit I didn’t follow the RHEL/CentOS 6.0 release cycle as closely as I should have. I’m just now jumping into it. Today I learned
yum-updatesd was dropped upstream. YUM isn’t perfect, but I did appreciate
yum-updatesd. I liked the email notification feature. It doesn’t seem like there’s any alternative that easily gives me that back.
I may just end up compiling this one from source to restore that functionality unless I can find something better. Of course there’s an irony of compiling something from source to handle a package manager.
