Hi there all,


I stumbled onto the Yum website because I was looking for a way to keep
track of advisories and updates.

Yum seems like a good way to actually update your server or servers. 

But my motto is; when it aint broke don't try to fix it (and also not all
vulnerabilities are always applicable to your machine). 

So what Im looking for is a way to check the latest advisories and compare
them with my system setup (ie. by using RPM headers), 

and then decide whether to update or not. 

To which extent is Yum capable of doing this or who had tips/suggestions on
how to tackle this problem?
