Update Notifier for Non Administrators

Registered by Scott Dier on 2006-06-14

Update Notifier is currently of little use to non-administrator users. In fact, it is not run when the user is not in the administrators group. A mode specifically set by an administrator should exist so that the notification daemon can inform the user of update notes and prompt for reboots when needed.

Couldn't generate effective discussion.
Shouldn't be hard to implement (now that I read the spec). If you need guidiance, let me know -- mvo

I'm actually not going to be employed by UMN/CS on 11/1/06, but I'll pass this on to the staff member that may work on it. -- sdier

This is implemented in intrepid, update-notifier runs for non-admins and will prompt for upgrade notes and show reboot required notifications.
