I like to know when security fixes and so on are released, quickly. But I do NOT want to sift through thousands of unrelated mails, alerts and so on to check if there is just one I need to be aware of.

What I've been trying so far is to use RSS and security mailing lists combined with filtering to stay on top of what needs my attention. Today I tried to add Java JRE to that mix .. seeing as it took a while for me to discover the latest update 11 was out, and had I known sooner, I'd be able to do the whole pack&test&deploy thing more timely. Trying to find a mailing list or feed or anything about the JRE without subscribing to A WHOLE LOT of java mumbo jumbo seems impossible.

So, anyone else out there in the same situation with a better solution, trying to manage java? I was thinking to turn on the automatic java updates on my own computer just to get the notification .. but I'd rather not do that as I like to run packages on my own computer just like I deploy them for the "extra free testing" it provides ..

Well I gave in and went with the "automatic java updates only on my own computer" solution. Its not pretty or elegant but it works. Grr I hate it when I can't solve something in a satisfying way. Well ok I'll get over it, eventually [:D]
