I'm sure others have had their own experiences in this and will share
accordingly. For my $.02 worth, any time I build a site using an open
source app, whether it be Wordpress, Drupal, Joomla, or whatever, I
take into account that there will be updates that will need to be done
from time to time. Most of the sites I build, I also host and maintain
and in such cases I'm not too concerned. When I do a one off project
for someone else then I'm always careful to make sure they understand
that they are trading low upfront costs for extra expenses down the

As for the line in the Wordpress administration section that tells
them that there's an update out, I comment that out before hand. :)
