Well, that's exactly how I use it. I install /etc/yum/yum-daily.yum as
part of my kickstart %post that updates yum, rpm, glibc, etc., then
updates everything, then does a bunch of groupinstall calls depending on
what the machine's function is. A very poor man's config management
system, you could say.
I still have to patch yum-cron to grep out all of the "already installed
and latest version" messages which I cannot seem to find a way to
I suspect if this functionality went away I'd just grab the old code and
keep using it.
