Description of problem:
Re-opening an important security issue #708865

Version-Release number of selected component (if applicable):
Fedora 18-19: Xfce spin

How reproducible:

Steps to Reproduce:
1. Install F19 Xfce spin.
2. Wait until package updates are available.

Actual results:
No update notification is shown.

Expected results:
Update notification is shown so that user may review and install updates.

Additional info:
There is a small workaround. Maybe something similar should be packages with the spin:

https://github.com/kirsle/bin/blob/master/pyupdatesd is the one that the fedora-xfce list thought might work out well. 

It still needs packaging and then we could add it to the spin yeah. 

We will hopefully get to it... feel free to coordinate with folks on the fedora-xfce list:
