The logic I recently implemented for gnome-software 3.12 in F21 is
check for new updates once per day, and download updates when they are
important (e.g. security updates), or when it has been a week since the
last time we installed updates. When a consistent set of updates has
been downloaded, we notify the user about available updates.
This seems pretty sensible.
I'm not really excited about a lot of required rebooting, though -- I think
that might be worse than the disease. We should have most of the information
needed to determine if a reboot is really necessary, shouldn't we? I hope we
can move to that in the future for a nicer user experience.
It would also be nice, in theory, to have an "install on next reboot" option
for non-critical updates which do require a reboot.
