Description

LSAC(v2)
The yum-updatesd package provides notification of updates which are available to be applied to the system. This notification can be done either via syslog, email or over the D-BUS communication system. This update fixes the following bugs: * Previously, after calling the doSetup routine the yum-updatesd daemon was losing the contents of the "ident" variable. Consequently, the data sent to syslog could not be identified properly in the /var/log/messages file. This update modifies the "ident" variable to preserve as expected and information in syslog messages in the /var/log/messages file is correct. (BZ#563494) * Due to a misprint, email notifications about available updates contained the word "packets" instead of "packages". This update corrects the spelling. (BZ#597431) All users of the yum-updatesd are advised to upgrade to this updated package, which fixes these bugs.
