What exactly do you mean by "breaching the rhn aup's"?

yes, its come up a few times, there has been some work done on it as 
well, however there is no automated way to get this info without 
breaching the rhn aup's - and I have zero interest in trawling through 
bugzilla and typing all these things out. If you want to propose a 
process to make this happen, I am all ears ( and eyes ).
