Description of problem:
Four different systems, three installed via F7 live CD, one successfully upgraded via yum over the network following meticulous instructions from the wiki; none of these systems has an /etc/cron.daily/yum.cron.

http://fedoraproject.org/wiki/AutoUpdates talks about updating /etc/cron.daily/yum.cron, but the files doesn't exist.

yum-updatesd is running on all these systems, but no automatic updates have ever occurred; all updates have been manually initiated. Regularly.

Version-Release number of selected component (if applicable):

How reproducible:

Steps to Reproduce:
1. Install from F7 live CD or upgrade over the net.
2. Update /etc/yum/yum-updatesd.conf with "do_update = yes".
3. Enable yum-updates.d
4. Wait forever for updates to occur.
5. Check for /etc/cron.daily/yum.cron.

Actual Results:
Manually initiated updates

Expected Results:
Automatically initiated updates

 yum-cron is not in the default install. Do yum install yum-cron if you want to
have it.

 yum-updatesd has had bugs in Fedora-7, update to the latest version with: yum
update yum-updatesd
