I've had to email > him a few times looking for some obscure src.rpm. We give the full path in our emailed advisories (except for the cases where we are shipping something not open source like java/acroread) but the paths are not in the web based versions. So http://www.redhat.com/archives/rhsa-announce/ since Nov 2007, or for older stuff http://www.redhat.com/archives/enterprise-watch-list/ Once you get a rpm then unpacking it without installing it is easy: rpm2cpio fn.rpm | cpio --make-directories --extract And we nearly always ship the pristine upstream tarball along with each patch separately (exception being things like OpenSSL). This is definately material for a 'how to find out how the vendor fixed this' page. Thanks, Mark -- Mark J Cox / Red Hat Security Response Team
