The Ubuntu security notices web page has an option to show only notices for a single release. Is there a way to get notices for a single release as a feed, without setting it up myself? That is, is there an official feed containing all and only Ubuntu 12.04 (for example) security notices?

The end goal is a tool which warns when any of a set of packages (not necessarily the ones installed on a system) for a single Ubuntu release are affected by a security notice.

Could you explain us more ? – Raja Oct 2 '12 at 11:39
I tried filtering using Feed Rinse and Yahoo! Pipes but didn't find a satisfactory way to do it. You might consider starting a wishlist item for this on Launchpad. There is precedent. – ændrük Oct 2 '12 at 16:43
