[unisog] How often to pull anti virus updates from vendors

My $.02, but what about a vendor based alert system?  Would anyone else be
interested in a vendor intiated push of "critical" updates to designated
distribution servers?  Granted there are some security concerns here but if
it went to a staging area on a local server, ie not into production/use, and
then the local server sent an email out saying "Hey, I've got a new virus
definition that should probably be pushed out" most of the major security
concerns could be controled.  Granted a lot of this functionality could be
gained by a good mailing list as well...
