If you're like me, you like to know what you're updating (even if you typically don't make any changes to the list)

simply add this line to your crontab
Code:
emerge -DuNp world > update_list > 2>&1 && mail -s "proposed updates for $HOST" username@domain > 2>&1


set the time for what you like, but for after you sync. you'll need this line on each box in your network
