Create a section for PBI updates and security updates section on main website and forum

Reported by: cabpa Owned by: kenmoore
Priority: minor Milestone: 9.2
Component: Misc Version: 9.0-RELEASE
Keywords: Cc: trac-bugs@…

Description

It is also good to have a section for PBI updates and security updates section on main website and forum so that there will be a section about new PBI updates and security updates.

Maybe the PBI updates section will be generated from the build servers or AppCafe? and the security updates will be a link to the FreeBSD Security Advisories and Errata Notices.

I second an update center website where one can see the complete history of released updates and the currently fully updated version numbers. The forum integration wouldn't be usefull for me. I don't really know any projects that use forums for "update centers" either. For me, the important part would be to see the complete history of system updates (the PC-BSD tool programs and language updates) with release notes and dates. I'm not sure but I think that the FreeBSD base system updates come in the same update packets as PC-BSD stuff, so those would be naturally combined.

Ken,

Can you add some sort of menu entry in Appcafe to launch the browser to this page?

That will work for the short-term, until we can find a better location for placing security notices for packages / PBIs.
