simplenom

simplenom is quickly hacked together Ruby script to check if there are any standard or security yum updates for your system. Basically it just runs “yum check-update” and “yum –security check-update” on your machine (which obviously has to use yum for package management, for example, Amazon's standard Linux dist) and it'll email you (using the awesome “pony” gem) when you need to update your packages.

The script is meant to be added to your crontab (on Amazon's Linux you don't have to be root so you can just add this to your regular user's crontab) as a daily (or weekly? whatever) cron job.

Dependencies

Make sure you have pony installed

[sudo] gem install pony

Configuration

Open the simplenom.rb and edit the $targetaddress and $fromaddress global vars
