Multilib Reminder in Security Emails?


Would it be possible/advisable to add a note to the security emails if an updated package is also part of the multilib install? I know with this last round of updates, seamonkey-solibs and cups are a part of multilib. I snagged the 32bit versions, converted them, and upgraded. It's kind of hard to keep track of which packages are a part of multilib.

Multilib is not part of Slackware. Therefore Slackware's security mailing list postings will not mention anything related to multilib.

You will have to monitor the add-ons to your system yourself. That should not be too hard, by reading the security emails and checking your system. The security patches do not occur that often.
