RFE: Common format for update/errata announcements



-----BEGIN PGP SIGNED MESSAGE-----
Hash: SHA1

Request for enhancement:

Please use ONE common format for Fedora update/errata announcements.

Until today we already got 4 different kinds of subject lines:

[SECURITY] Fedora Core 1 Update: glibc-2.3.2-101.1
Fedora Core 1 Update: epic-1.0.1-16
Fedora Update Notification: Mozilla [1.4.1-18]
Updated ethereal packages available

I would propose to use the first format listed above with the extension
to replace the prefix [SECURITY] with [BUGFIX] or [ENHANCEMENT] when
appropriate.

Every announcement should be GPG signed.

Also I think it would be better to put the rpm names and the md5sums
into the same line. This would increase readability alot.

And as already requested before can we please get a central web page
containing all update announcements something like
https://rhn.redhat.com/errata/rh9-errata.html

Shouldn't these announcements not also be posted at the Bugtraq and
Full-Disclosure mailing-lists?

Filed as RFE bug #111056.

Best regards.
