Please distribute Windows Updates via a package provider. This will allow browsing and installing updates via existing cmdlets such as Find-Package and Install-Package.

Thanks for the suggestion. This is something we are investigating, but no decision has been made at this time.
It would be nice if this solution also allowed querying Microsoft Update Catalog for information about updates, which would be a really nice alternative to IE-only based website.

Additionally we would like a way to install all updates within a repo or create "channels" similar to spacewalk on linux for baselines. ie. Win2k12R2_Updates_Jan, Win2k12_Updates_June, etc.
Or create groupings or updates... look to community for examples on how to solve.
