It's still a work in progress.

Regarding 1)

There is extUpdate.sh:

Which checks installed extensions against the cache in the database (so
that scheduler task better be running!).
Currently only works for "default" extensions (in typo3conf/ext).
To retrieve the upload comments, it relies on a second script to be
present and the --changelog argument to be supplied.


extChangelog.sh can read the upload comments from the extension cache
in the database and display them chronologically (optionally limited to
a version range).

Regarding 2)

I wanted to add that, but I first have to find out how to properly run
database updates and custom update scripts. So that the user doesn't
have to worry about messages like these:

WARNING!!! Primary key change for redirects table! You absolutely MUST
run database update several times until table structure is ok. Or you
are screwed up.

But it'll do fine to generate a daily extension update report and send
it to me via mail or give me a quick update when I log into the server.
