Message There are several reports of users of current using rsync to get just
the errata, and then configuring current to use _just_ those errata
rpms.

NOTE: if you do that, you may or may not have dep issues when trying to
apply some of those errata. (Its unlikely that RH would do that, but it
is technically possible).

Current can certainly handle all the versions / archs of RHL going back
to at least 6.2. (I think thats still right - I guess I need a 6.2
repository to test with.... :)
