It's a whole lot easier than the old situation of tracking the
security lists every day.
Is there a comparably easy way to track available and critical
upgrades for the FreeBSD core?
The canonical way to do this is to subscribe to announce@ and/or
[EMAIL PROTECTED] Very low traffic, but
you need to know comes through those channels.
I do that, but my mailbox gets lots of traffic. Sometimes I
miss something, and as far as I know, there's then no way
system to keep reminding me, nor a way to quickly check the
current state of play.
I find that using folders / pidgeon holes that the mailer
can filter things into works well. I have a freebsd-question,
etc etc . The rules then presort inbound for me .. and
if it doesnt match a rule it lands in the normal INBOX..
Helpful I'm sure, but I'm not new to email.
I've got extensive filtering in place, but there's a lot of irregular
stuff that doesn't match rules, and sorting stuff like security-announce
into a separate mailbox would just put it out of sight where it's easier
