OpenBSD Errata

OpenBSDI've added OpenBSD Errata information to the sidebar on my site.

I use a cron job to download the errata web pages from http://www.openbsd.org/errata.html (and, errata38.html, etc) once every three hours. I have a screen scraping script I modified to create an RSS feed for the OpenBSD Errata.

Finally, I use the GetRSS plugin to display the feed on my Wordpress pages.

I've made the RSS feeds for 3.9 and 3.8 available as well (note the RSS links to the right).


  1. Nice RSS :) I think I'm going to use it for 3.8, if you don't mind.

    Thanks you (from a busy sysadm).

  2. Go for it! I'm hoping I don't see a heavy impact from RSS use (not just by you) given Daniel's post about RSS on undeadly.

    Also, I fixed the problem where my site couldn't read the RSS feed for the sidebar.
