There is a RHN-like applet for APT, it's called apt-watch (it might not be too easy to find out though). > Would anyone be interested in seeing such a project take shape? I found the above the hardway, that is, after porting the RHN-applet myself from RedHat to Debian, learning GNOME-Python along the way. I have a working applet , if anyone is interested, with the same exact features as the RHN applet (the capability to 'ignore' packages). If anyone wants to invest time in this appet please let me know, I rather invest time cooperating with apt-watch and improving that applet with some of the (nice) features of the RHN applet. It's also something that might be good to include in the default GNOME setup in Debian. Regards Javier  Some features, like configuration saving and launching the update application don't work, but I'm not going to invest more time on that.
