need to provide a yum plugin like yum-refresh-updatesd

Should have a plugin like yum-refresh-updatesd so that manual yum installs
update package kit's (and especially the applet) view of the world.
Even better might be if it didn't need a plugin and instead something (maybe the
applet, maybe the daemon while it's running) watched via inotify for changes to
repos, yum cache dirs and the rpmdb and used that as a trigger
check out yum-packagekit - I think it does exactly what you're asking for. It
would've been smart if I'd requested you add that to comps at the same time as
gnome-packagekit, but smart eluded me this time. Is it too late to get it into
comps for the beta?
Yeah, looks pretty much exactly like the refresh-updatesd version.
For the beta, we'll be fine without it installed by default. It probably makes
sense to end up having PackageKit require it like we have yum-updatesd require
the refresh-updatesd plugin.
Yup, requiring it by default is a good idea. It makes PK a bit cleverer when you
start using yum behind its back.
Built PackageKit-0.1.9-2 with the aforementioned Requires.
