comment Debian/Ubuntu: Enabling “dist-upgrade” behavior for unattended-upgrades?
First off, unattended-upgrades is already driven by a cron job. See: /etc/cron.daily/apt. What I'd like to know is the proper (cleanest) way to change it's behavior.

comment How to run a program inside chroot with stdin/stdout available to caller?
There may be some other problem actually, because, come to think of it "chroot /var/lib/chroot /bin/bash" does exactly this, right? Interactive shell started by the caller with stdin/stdout.... hmm.
