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

            : repositories.
            : GitPython provides object model access to your git repository.
            : Once you have created a repository object, you can traverse it
            : find parent commit(s), trees, blobs, etc.

[/var/www/html/repo]#rpm -q GitPython

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.

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