Description (last modified by trev)


We are currently using as our Ubuntu 12.04 image for Vagrant. However, this box is outdated - it is the initial Ubuntu 12.04 release, not the current Ubuntu 12.04.4 release.

What to change

Use the official Ubuntu images from - these are being updated regularly. Also, debian-goodies package should be made part of the base system, the utility checkrestart should make updating already installed systems easier.

After testing popbugs a bit, this doesn't seem as useful as its description implies. Not only does it rely on a log produced by the popularity-contest tool for no good reason, the list of bugs produced doesn't seem to be a useful help for decisions. It is pretty much an undifferentiated dump of the Debian bug database rather than a list of "critical bugs with patches available that you didn't install yet." Still, checkrestart is a must-have.

Monitoring seems to be a good alternative to what I thought popbugs would be doing.
