Default LTSP chroot updates

With the number of general updates (Firefox, CUPS, etc.) that are being
issued for Ubuntu, comes this question. How often should an
administrator update LTSP chroot? Or is this no longer an issue with LTSP5?

(F.Y.I. I am running Ubuntu 7.10 and LTSP5 in my current environment.)

we have a spec [1] since gutsy to integrate the ltsp chroot with the update-manager so it would actually notify you about upgrades available for the client chroot, sadly the spec has no high priority and my time to work on such stuff is very limited .... so fo the time being the answer is: every timre your desktop notifies you you should update if you really think you need to* ... the thing with ltsp is that its rather a closed environment (no accounts on the client at all, root locked and its actually a readonly filesystem) so it isnt as vulnerable* as a normal system.
