Not really. You can use the same common sense as with the base system and even
more so (for the base system I just install them always, as it doesn't pay off
in the long run to skip them). Portaudit for a (web)server has a lot of
notifications that "are not critical", like several issues over the last year
with php's safe mode that any sane webserver admin doesn't use.
