Description d-mueth 2000-08-07 15:13:12 UTC
Right now, up2date gives a description of each package which can be
updated.  What is really of interest is why the package was updated - bug
fixes, enhancements, or security

I am mainly concerned with just patching security holes, as I imagine many
people are.  It would be very nice if up2date described either:
   1) A description of the reason for the update
   2) A symbol designating which updates are security-related.
