Too bad though that it seems sysconfig/rhn/ can only take info from the

RHN notification tool won't automatically be aware of Extras after this
package is installed.

Add a post install script that does

echo "..." >> /etc/sysconfig/rhn/sources

and a post uninstall script that does

grep -v "..." /etc/sysconfig/rhn/sources > /tmp/sources.new
mv /etc/sysconfig/rhn/sources.rpmsave
mv /tmp/sources.new /etc/sysconfig/rhn/sources

You could add some 'if [ $? != 0 ]; ...' stuff to rollout the changes if a
command fails, but it would mean that up2date can use Extras and the rhn_applet
will se updates.

I'd me more in favor of the script checking the /etc/sysconfig/rhn/sources to see if an entry exists, then appending the entry into the file if there are no entries for fedora-extras. I use up2date a lot and use specific mirrors that I would not like to have bothered.
