Hi everybody,

In response to the security releases we did yesterday, we've activated the
built-in PowerDNS 'upgrade now' system for the first time, and we have a
question for you.

This system is described in
http://blog.powerdns.com/2014/10/22/powerdns-security-status-polling/ and
documented on https://doc.powerdns.com/md/common/security/#security-polling

As you are upgrading, could you check if the message was logged correctly to
your syslog? We'd like to know if the system works as intended.

And, while we have your attention, we'd like to remind you that if you poll
the 'security-status' metric of PowerDNS (which you can also plot if you
want), you can get your monitoring system to warn you about upgrades!

See the second URL for how this works. Thanks!
