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 ?

    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.

Created a bug report based on @ændrük's comment.

Ubuntu Security Notice feeds per release

Following up on bug #71685, it would be great if there were separate web feeds for each release.

As of 2015, the status has changed as Confirmed → Fix Released but the following comment in late-2017 noted that a pop-up menu allows to filter the web page by release, but not the RSS feed.

To this date, the RSS feed has yet to provide separate feeds per release.
