Ok - that makes sense :) So doing a dist-upgrade on a regular basis is
better than doing just the upgrade? Or knowing what packages have
changed is the best?
Eventually I hope to automate this stuff but I'm still trying to figure
out what's best to automate. I hear that's a sign of a good sys admin -
script everything so you have time to surf the web and talk in IRC ;)
