Getting Started with Foreman and Katello

Problem:
I’m Foreman and katello newbie. We are looking at replaceing Spacewalk with Foreman/Katello. We are particulary interested in the patch update functionality. Have found the following link which seems to be particulary helpful: Getting Started I’m wondering if there is an update available to this document please point me in the right direction. If you have any recomendations as to how we should setup foreman/katello to recieve from the centos web sites patches and the update process for our centos vm’s it would be greatly appreciated.

Thank you

Norm
