The optional yum change log module provides a way to examine the change log of available repo updates or already installed RPM packages installed through yum.
The installation is the same for both SME8 and SME9. The yum change log module is available through the default SME Server repo's, so no additional repo's are required. To install the module, as root enter:
yum install yum-changelog python-dateutil
After installation, yum change log is immediately available without any further configuration to either yum or SME Server.
