I was wondering whether most people are automatically running rug (with
cron) or are most people treating it like an service pack and scheduling
it. The reason I ask is I was originally running rug through cron and had
a few problems with some of the updates. I have had problems in my cluster
after two seperate patches, originally sp2, then a kernel patch made it so
some of my nodes wouldn't join the cluster. With the problems I have had I
decided to manually run rug every so often, after hours, non-critical boxes
first (expecially on my cluster nodes) but it made me think whether people
generally feel safe patching there servers through rug with no testing.

Another related question is whether people feel safe allowing the kernel to
be patched or should it be protected through yast.
