[yt-users] new yt feature: yt update --all

Greetings everyone,

I would like to announce a new feature that has been added to the
development version of yt.  For some time now, one could update their yt
installation by issuing the command "yt update".  However, updating yt's
dependencies has required one to rerun the install script manually.  Now
you can simply do:

yt update --all

and yt will rerun the install script for you with the proper installation

Additionally, when you type "yt instinfo", yt will print the last time the
dependencies were updated.

In order to have this feature, you will need to be using the development
version of yt, and will have to first run "yt update" once.

Note: only use this if you originally used the install script for your
installation.  Custom installations, such as those using the system python,
should still be updated manually.

We hope this will simplify the process of keeping one's installation up to
date.  As always, please let us know if you encounter any unexpected
behavior with this.

Team yt
