I agree, but i've introduced myself in the discussion on the (Fedora)
yum/pup update icon. So thinking to a distinctive Fedora "sign" was only
a proposal for one and only one icon.
{ maybe not the "bubble" but only the "f" character with arrows? }

Agree, but also the old up2date icon was "unclear" if one didn't verify
its meaning.

Just before reading your e-mail I was also looking at OS-Dir SUSE 10.1
screenshot and saw that they seems to have adopted the Tango
software-update icon:
