Hi Martin,

For Fedora, the CHECKRPMS script is much simpler already we just mail
out the results of "yum check-update".

I would prefer to not decouple loncapa and RPM checking.

I want the default loncapa install to setup some kind of reminder
script that checks for RPM updates.

Now the existing CHECKRPMS for 7.3 has some issues, and we might want
to ask during the UPDATE procedure if the user wants this automated
checking but I would really prefer the default to have something.
