keeping updated rpms built from source with up2date

Hello,

I usually install binary rpm packages and keep them updated calling up2date -u in a cron job, but what happens if I build a rpm from source? Will it be updated as well like others with up2date?

Thanks in advance for your help

No, rpms you compile yourself are not updated.

In short, no. Subscribe to the postfix mailing list to recieve updates when a new version comes out, then recompile.
