As for XCode, you might want to both update from the app store and check the XCode Preferences [menu] on the “Downloads” tab to make sure there are no additional updates being distributed that way, regardless of OS version, IMHO.

Thanks for the M&M package, this is fantastic!  On the critical side, the package BOM only lists an extinct tarball instead of the actual files and directories in the package. Just a nit pick, apologies:

$ lsbom /private/var/db/receipts/ 
.	40755	0/80
./tmp	41775	0/0
./tmp/ISCBIND-9.9.4-binary-x86_64-10.9-.tar.gz	100664	0/0	17867831	3291002827
