on our short term radar.Jeff Rubin commented
We need this ability too. We have lab machines in an isolated network that we only want to advertise software updates and essentially make it optional. A deployment deadline in the future takes care of this, but it downloads the updates to the ccmcache folder which we do not want. It's wasted bandwidth and wasted CPU cycles as these machines are reverted to a base snapshot on an almost daily basis. We assume making the deployment "available" instead of "required" would solves this.
