View Full Version : SLES-Other What happens when suse erratum is updated?

01-Mar-2018, 19:20
When errata information for dnf/yum get updated the <updated date=""> field in the updateinfo.xml is modified:

<?xml version="1.0"?>
<update from="errata@redhat.com" status="stable" type="security" version="1">
<issued date="2012-01-27 16:08:06"/>
<updated date="2012-01-27 16:08:06"/>
<collection short="">
<package arch="noarch" name="walrus" release="1" src="http://www.fedoraproject.org" version="5.21">

No such field exists on suse's updateinfo.xml [0]

How does SUSE deal with updated erratum? Is a new errata published everytime an update is needed? Or does SUSE update the existing errata?
