Agreed. Before I update a huge number of hosts I'd like to check the
changelogs for any possible trouble. This is the the main thing I miss in dnf
+1, as a system administrator I often use repoquery or the yum plugin to get
changelogs. This is especially useful when demonstrating that a particular
CVE has been mitigated in a given envr. Utility that enables compliance is
very valuable for my use case.
Recently I wrote a simple bash script to get new changelog entries for a dnf update.
