the script I use to get email notifications of the affected ebuilds,
that also prepares a shell script that fixes the glsas.

might be useful for someone.



if [ -f $tmp ] ; then
 rm -f $tmp

if [ -f $update ] ; then
 rm -f $update

emerge --sync >/dev/null 2>&1
glsa-check -n --list affected 2> /dev/null > $tmp

arr=(`cat $tmp | awk '{print $1}'`)

if [ $BUGCOUNT -gt "0" ] ; then

echo -e '#!/bin/bash' > $update
echo -ne '#relevant as for ' >> $update
echo `date +%D` >> $update

 while (($n < $BUGCOUNT)); do

echo "/usr/bin/glsa-check -f" ${arr[$n]} >> $update
cat $glsa/glsa-${arr[$n]}.xml | grep "# emerge"  | grep -v "emerge
--sync" | \
  sed 's/\&quot\;/\"/g' | sed 's/\&gt\;/\>/g' | sed 's/<\/code>//g' >>
echo  >> $update
  let n+=1

echo -e "\nRun $update to update the system" >> $tmp
 cat $tmp | /bin/mail -s GLSA_UNAPPLIED email_address@...
 rm -rf $tmp
