to contribute, I need to know the list of thing to be made.

the backend daemon is checked into yum cvs:

the frontend applet is in fedora cvs, I think, but I've not seen it yet.
Jeremy, where is it?


I found Jeremy's code here.

export CVSROOT=:pserver:anonymous elvis redhat com:/usr/local/CVS
cvs login
cvs checkout pirut

take a look at publet.py.

I have done a little test.

1. copy 'etc/yum-updatesd.conf' from yum CVS Head  to ' /etc/dbus-1/system.d/'
2. create '/etc/yum/yum-updatesd.conf'
emit_via = dbus
run_interval = 60  # Check for update every 60 sek.
3. run 'sudo python yum-updatesd.py -f' from a directory containing yum CVS head.
4. run 'dbus-monitor --system' in another window to monitor DBus signals.
5. run 'python publet.py' from a directory containing the pirut CVS checkout.

Every 60 sek, you will see DBus signal from yum-updatesd.py telling is any updates is availible.

If any updates is available, publet.py will show an icon in the notification area.

I have used FC5 for the test and gnome-python2-libegg need to be installed for puplet.py.
