Magento Module: Patch Knowledge Base

An internal aggregator of Magento security patches with knowledge base articles.


This module was developed to help collect Magento CE and EE security patches from the Magento official sources. Using aggregation tools, this module could retrieve and store the latest patches and serve them to a team intranet for immediate download and application.

Additionally, notes could be stored on the use of each patch for other teammates to review.
