That presuposes that you know which files need updating, or that you
don't mind downloading every new file that appears on a repo.

If you're allowed to do personal mail at work, I'd suggest joining the
fedora-packages-announce list, so you get mail about what's being
updated and why (most give at least some summary).  Then you can tell if
you want to bother getting some of the updates - If you're not on the
net, a lot of the security issues won't be a concern for you, you'd
probably be most interested in bug fixes for any problems that you'd
encountered for yourself (rather than some package author has updated
some typos in the documentation, etc.).

Don't send private replies to my address, the mailbox is ignored.
I read messages from the public lists.
