I manage my RHEL 6 / 7 systems with yum pointed at a local repository that is a replica of the official repository from Red Hat.
Other people have installed newer versions of some packages as follows:
rpm -i <package name>-<newer version>-<release number of newer version>.rpm
I would rather they'd give me the .rpm because then I could put it in my repo, run createrepo to rebuild the repo with the newer package version, and then update the package as follows:
yum update <package name>
How may I identify installed packages for which the installed package version-release is newer than the version-release in my repo?
Note that this is the opposite of yum update, which identifies installed packages for which the installed package version-release is older than the version-release in my repo.
