Maybe you want to have a look at


(or deb http://debian.rfc2324.org/debian woody rbm-apt-watch)

This contains a script that will do a rather similar thing:

run 'apt-get update'
if this was successfull run 'apt-get upgrade -s' and write a
mail to root (or someone else) to inform that there are things
to be updated, if there are some.
You are also able to exclude packages via a regex.

We're using that thing on all our servers at work.
