2) would require turning the code into something more real-world
capable... and I never got around to do it as I realized I dont
particularly miss the update notifications.
And in fact, you do get notifications IF you're running
gnome-settings-daemon (ie have enabled "Launch GNOME services on
startup" in session settings), but they're just regular notification
bubbles and not persistent. Also the update-check runs so
infrequently by default that I rarely get to see them as I tend to
run 'yum update' manually once a day anyway.
Okay, I found another solution for my problem:
I found a script that will be executed every hour by a crontab. For
watching my mailbox on /var/spool/mail/heiko I use the
xfce4-mailwatcher-plugin and for reading those mails I use Alpine.
