upgrades take up a significant chunk of time every week and distract sysadmins (or at least me) from focusing on other projects.

upgrades should be therefore automated, as much as possible.

i setup needrestart everywhere, using a puppet module. it's currently in "interactive" mode, which means it will do nothing during automated upgrades and will prompt during manual ones. my hope is to use needrestart manually for a while to see if it works well and, when it does, deploy it automated everywhere.

i also eventually want to run unattended-upgrades everywhere.

between those two tools, we should get rid of 50-75% of the manual work involved here, the remaining being reboots. those could also be automated, if we find a way for the servers to coordinate among themselves.
