I was actually trying to use the smartd specific example of the need
for a more general solution to the problem of relying of users to
interact with the system as root users in a number of ways in order to
see useful information. How many users see the logging and
notification information the system could be producing? How many users
actually login as root and read roots local email? In a home system
situations i doubt its very many. In large multiuser corporate network
you can probably reasonably rely on it.
Not on every workstation...
On hobbiest desktops and
workstations its going to depend heavily on that person's experience
level, new people coming in to the fedora process as their first
venture into linux i doubt are going to know check roots email for
this sort of notification.
