Yay!!! ;)

Since that's now in, I'd like to introduce everyone to the "Update  
status advanced settings" contrib for D6 and beyond:


Users of update_status 5.x-2.* from contrib will notice that  
update.module in core lost all the fine-grained settings to ignore  
specific projects or even specific releases.  Dries thought the UI  
was too complicated for core, so we moved it into contrib.  However,  
many sites will probably want this added flexibility.  So, please  
give it a try and file any issues you find in the issue queue:


Also, I just added another component to the core issue queue for  
"update.module", so if anyone finds any problems, please report them  
there and I'll see them.


p.s. Eeek, should we try to rename the "update system" core component  
to "DB update system" or something to help avoid confusion?  I've  
been worried about confusion between update.php and update.module for  
a while in the update.module issue, but no one seemed to comment or  
care... *shrug*
