Hi Drew. Nice to see you here =)

In fact the guy told us that updates must be as automated as possible. It's
because people who will do the maintenance job are not skilled enogh and
asking them to type "dpkg -i blablabla" is out of question. I proposed him
to offer some sort of bash script that could download and install the
packages without much user interference, if automatic updates or a PPA
aren't available soon. It's not the best option, but it could give time for
the other options to become available.

Regards
