What a terrible idea. My users, who are welcome to ssh into a number of
machines at my site, have no need to see that information.

Get information, append to /etc/motd. You could parse yum output in a
cron job if you really wanted it. It would almost certainly be better
to mail that information, though, if the admin really wants it. I often
go some time without actually having to ssh into many of my server.
