[CentOS-announce] New Errata Query Scripts for CentOS Linux 7 Updates

You may have noticed no announcemenst for the last several weeks for 
CentOS Linux 7, though the updates have been happening.

This article explains that Red Hat has decommissioned the 
'|api.access.redhat.com/rs' API for queries.


This was the service I was using to query data for announcements for 
CentOS 7 errata.  I used that article to find new endpoints, which 
required a rewrite my scripts to query data.

It took me some time to find the new query endpoints that I could use to 
get the information I needed for errata using the information that I 
have when I build CentOS Linux 7 packages, but I now have working errata 
scripts again.

I am going to announce all the older updates that were previously 
pushed, though the dates will be today's date (can't send old dated 
emails on the mailing list or they will hit everyone's spam filter 
instead :D)

This should solve this problem and announcements should again be more 
timely in the future.
