Autoupdating modules aren't all super reliable.

  • There's around 25% failing projects at all times.
  • Changelogs/NEWS files get removed/reformatted, thus break.
  • Regex/Homepage scans are unreliable by nature.
  • The GitHub module is somewhat flaky, and I suspect the crawler gets blocked after a thousand page requests.

Currently there's just a debug log, kept locally on producition server, a summary mailed out.

  • We rather should have a more detailed HTTP request log.
  • Autoupdate result overviews.
  • An easier way to discover failed requests.
  • In summary: an accessible/public UI that makes auditing of autoupdates simpler.


  • Implement a log or event DB.
  • More detailed message backend (currently just CLI/html printouts).
