Hi, yum gurus,

How do I know which packages are an updates?
I tried on F21 x86_64:

yum info updates | more

And I get:
yum info updates | more
Loaded plugins: langpacks
Updated Packages
Name        : GitPython
Arch        : noarch
Version     : 0.3.2
Release     : 0.6.RC1.fc20
Size        : 433 k
Repo        : updates/20/x86_64
Summary     : Python Git Library
URL         : http://pypi.python.org/pypi/GitPython/
License     : BSD
Description : GitPython is a python library used to interact with Git
            : repositories.
            :
            : GitPython provides object model access to your git repository.
            : Once you have created a repository object, you can traverse it
to
            : find parent commit(s), trees, blobs, etc.
            :
            : GitPython is a port of the grit library in Ruby created by Tom
            : Preston-Werner and Chris Wanstrath.



But:
[/var/www/html/repo]#rpm -q GitPython
Gives:
GitPython-0.3.2-0.5.RC1.fc20.noarch

Please not that the installed package version is 0.3.2-0.5.RC1, which
is not from the updates repo, but from the original f20 release.
See:
http://rpmfind.net//linux/RPM/fedora/20/x86_64/g/GitPython-0.3.2-0.5.RC1.fc20.noarch.html


My goal is to list the packages which were updated by the "yum update" command.

regards,
Kevin
