The Changes / Description tabs in the Update Manager are very useful to get a concise explanation for each update, but I only use the shell to update now (
sudo sh -c "apt-get update && apt-get -y dist-upgrade && apt-get -y autoremove && apt-get autoclean"). Is there some web site where I can subscribe to a feed for these upgrades? That would be more convenient than going back to the GUI or trying to figure out after the fact where all the information is on my local box.
- A chronological list of all updates to all packages, not one list per package. In other words, exactly like in the Update Manager.
- Preferably with about the same amount of information as is shown in the Update Manager, but with links to bug reports, VCS log, diffs and other relevant information.
- Preferably retrievable as a web feed, to be able to read it in a more sane way than repeatedly checking a web site manually.
This would be an awesome way to keep track of the updates without having to read them at install time, and with the possibility to dig into lots more detail when wanted. Who knows, maybe it could even lead to more community participation, since it is essentially a furthering of the existing style of openness?
