I used to do a daily update and a weekly upgrade on workstations.  Now I'm using
a local repository for our own packages and also to cache "vetted" packages --
while we trust the packagers, we still like to give the new packages a cooling
off period before they go live, the theory being that we can actually check the
package before it gets installed on all the servers.

apt-proxy (or current for Red Hat using up2date) is good for the cache,
mini-dinstall for uploading your own packages into a local repository.
