there's nothing to patch unless we provide some info on packages that we
can extract from and finally build updateinfo.xml.gz. So as the majority
of CentOS community knows nothing about how packages are produced and
how CESA are produced, we do not have CESA RRS feed, we don´t have
CVE-to-CESA. So you can´t expect someone from community to step in. I
can see the only way to create updateinfo.xml.gz now - browse the repo
and extract these info/tags from change logs, which are often
incomplete. And I'm not sure it's worth.
