The yum command line tool is great for anyone who wants to see more of

Well, ...

* ... in recent weeks (last time today) I've seen it forgetting about its reboot notification (I was notified about updates being available, and updated, but haven't rebooted since then - Initially the "reboot notification button" appeared, meanwhile it's gone).

 Yum also has bits that allow it to
communicate with PackageKit when run on the command line.  This system
works quite well.
May-be for you ... I am not excited about PK. A nice idea, but (over-?) ladden with many (IMO) discussworthy/questionable "features".
