Description

LSAC(v2)
The yum-rhn-plugin package allows the Yum package manager to access content from Red Hat Network. This update fixes the following bug: * The timeout option in the /etc/yum.conf file allows the system administrator to specify how many seconds the yum package manager waits for a connection before it times out. Previously, rhnplugin ignored this value, which could occasionally cause it to time out during communication with Red Hat Network, especially in a slow network environment. This update corrects this error, and rhnplugin now respects the timeout value set for all yum repositories as expected. (BZ#783958) As well, this update adds the following enhancements: * Prior to this update, it was not possible to set global settings for rhnplugin that would apply to all channels the system is subscribed to. Now channels inherit the global settings by default, but the settings can be overridden if desired. (BZ#799732) * This update improves the messaging of rhnplugin to incorporate receiving content from Red Hat Subscription Manager. (BZ#830194) All users are advised to upgrade to this updated package, which fixes this bug and adds these enhancements.
