Hi all,

I would like to propose the following feature requests for TeX Live.

1) Can the installer ask if a cron job will be installed that will check 
twice a day if updates are available and will pop up tlmgr GUI? This is 
the same idea as Ubuntu's update manager.

2) Can the installer offer an option to enable e-mail notification when 
updates are available for server installation? This is the same idea as 

3) Also provide documentation to enable, disable and configure this 
after an installation has been done.

Apticron is scheduled for 13:00 and 19:00 hours. Perhaps 13:10 and 19:10 
would be conveniend times.

Best regards,
