Summary0000105: Parsable errata format
DescriptionHuge fan that errata is available via errata.almalinux.org.

However, we use a platform for patching servers automatically and thus we parse errata. For CentOS we have been using unofficial errata cefs[.]steve-meier[.]de. For AlmaLinux we would like errata to be published in a structured format (such as JSON or XML), so we won't have to parse HTML that will likely change some day.

Hello.
Errata is also available in traditional updateinfo.xml format for dnf, for example:
https://repo.almalinux.org/almalinux/8/BaseOS/x86_64/os/repodata/321c965c99e4179149d63e824b6e2f168e2b6761358681cb54ea41adda030f4e-updateinfo.xml.gz
Is it an option for you?
