yum-cron - an interface to conveniently call yum from cron
yum-cron is an alternate interface to yum that is optimised tobe convenient to call from cron. It provides methods to keeprepository metadata up to date, and to check for, download, and applyupdates. Rather than accepting many different command line arguments,the different functions of yum-cron can be accessed through configfiles.
config-file is used to optionally specify the path to theconfiguration file to use. If it is not given, the defaultconfiguration file will be used. It is useful to be able to specifydifferent configuration files for different use cases. For example,one configuration file might be set to update the repository metadata,and a line could be added to the crontab to run yum-cron frequentlyusing this file. Then, another configuration file might be set toinstall updates, and yum-cron could be run from cron using this filejust once each day.
