Would it be possible to have a link to the changelog of an update instead of a generic "Security Warning Please Update Or Else Your Server Will Explode In 3...2....1" message for every minor patch update?

Thank you.

Igor : Its not a good idea on a workstation but on a server, its NEVER a good idea to have automatic updates.  Keeping an uptime high is much easier when a sysadmin knows when and what is updated.

I totally agree.  Updating a production server should never be more than twice a year, and the patch should be thoroughly tested before release.  The last 3 updates, it took me up to a week, each time, to find the source of the bugs and crashes.  Automatic update is cool on a workstation but on a server,  its bad practice. 

Oh and btw, installing new software packages in an update without consent is NOT cool at all.  I found Netdata installed and enabled, out of the blue.  An external monitoring system that export server data to a cloud service is a security risk that i did not agreed on.
