Security notification script

I have written a python script that allows you to compares locally
installed  packages with those on security.debian.org. Furthermore it
provides a description of the problem/DSA name if the package is
mentioned in the DSA RDF.

The script is intended to be run as a normal user in a crontab, and thus
produces no output if the system is completely upto date.

You will need to install python2.2 and python2.2-xml prior to using the
script which can be found at

Any feedbacl/ideas would be much appreciated. I plan to make some minor
changes and package this up later this week :)
