upgrade packages which have RC-bugs

Do not try this without knowing what it does. I do not take any responsibility if you have problems afterwards. Use it at your own risk.

sudo apt-get install `rc-alert | grep Package | cut -f 2 -d ' ' | tr '\n' ' '`

It checks the installed packages which have RC (release critical) bugs and tries to upgrade them to the latest versions. Combined with apt-listchanges, apt-listbugs this command provides a way to have an unstable (sid) system which does not contain any RC bugs.
