The little bot, that tells you about updated Debian packages, if you like it or not: Pain in the APT.
debacle – Monday, 12 February - 21:02
If you happen to run Debian, you might like to know about available package upgrades. If you are using XMPP and/or email,
painintheaptmight come handy. It runs once a day and sends out a nicely formatted table of old and new package versions and even adds the list of changes for all affected packages. The information will be send to your personal XMPP account, to a MUC, or to a PubSub node. Also, via any SMTP server or
mailxto your mailbox.
