They will just have to download and apply them like everyone used to
before they came up with up2date.  Can't expect to get ease of use for

I too use apt-rpm, but it seems like the repositories lag behind the
security updates by a week or so.  Is this just me, or are there better
apt-rpm repositories than the freshrpms.net site?
