In the GF Admin Guide there is a section titled:

Tools for Extending and Updating GlassFish Server

This section needs:

1) An introduction to Update Center and then a breakdown of the tools which are available. That includes updatetool, software update/notifier and the pkg command.
2) A section that discusses the various GF repositories which are available and how to access packages on those repositories. This may include discussing how to change the preferred repository for a GF installation.
3) How to enable/disable the notifier post installation.

Comment by Paul Davies [ 03/Mar/11 ]

A conscious decision was taken not to replicate in the GlassFish Server documentation information that is available elsewhere. For example, the GlassFish Server documentation should not replicate information that is provided in the Update Tool online help. This decision was taken when Update Center was still independent of GlassFish Server.

WRT item 1) The cited section already provides a breakdown of the tools that are of interest to the system administrator (see http://download.oracle.com/docs/cd/E18930_01/html/821-2416/gkcbv.html#gkcba ). Now that the sole reason for Update Center's existence is GlassFish, there might be value in adding some of the content in the cross-referenced wikis to the GlassFish documentation.

WRT item 2) This information is already provided in Preconfigured Repositories for GlassFish Server (http://download.oracle.com/docs/cd/E18930_01/html/821-2416/gjzko.html )

WRT item 3) Now that the sole reason for Update Center's existence is GlassFish, there might be value in adding this information to the GlassFish documentation.

Bulk update to set Fix Version to "not determined" for issues that had it set to a version that has already been released.
