Hi,

first I'd like to thank you for finally provinding C5.6!

After updating several servers to C5.6 I checked the installed RPMS
against the list of update announcements from upstream. Some updates
seem to be missing and some seem to have package naming issues:


Missing updates:

- libuser
C5.6 as of today has libuser-0.54.7-2.1.el5_4.1
Upstream announced libuser-0.54.7-2.1.el5_5.2
(https://rhn.redhat.com/errata/RHSA-2011-0170.html)

- java-1.6.0-openjdk
C5.6 as of today has java-1.6.0-openjdk-1.6.0.0-1.16.b17.el5
Upstream announced java-1.6.0-openjdk-1.6.0.0-1.17.b17.el5
(https://rhn.redhat.com/errata/RHSA-2011-0176.html)

For the following I'm not sure if these are really missing updates or
just different namings in the upstream and Centos RPMS:

- openoffice.org
 C5.6 as of today has openoffice.org-*-3.1.1-19.5.el5_5.1

- libvirt
 C5.6 as of today has libvirt-0.8.2-15.el5.3
 Upstream announced libvirt-0.8.2-15.el5_6.3
(https://rhn.redhat.com/errata/RHSA-2011-0391.html)

- glibc
