General Errata Information

Errata is generated via a system called "Apollo" together with the build system peridot. The Apollo system replaces the old errata system "secparse" and effectively generates the updateinfo.xml data that will appear in repositories. This provides information such as:

  • Security advisories (RLSA)
  • Bugfix advisories (RLBA)
  • Enhancement advisories (RLEA)

This information generally attempts to match the advisories provided by Red Hat. Errata for your system can be found by running dnf updateinfo.
