[Dextrose] [DESIGN]Resolution for ticket au#887

Hi all.

Kindly correlate this mail with *[PATCH]Resolution for ticket au#887*

For the resolution, the approach currently followed is ::

1. Spawn a background thread at laptop startup during loading of
home-window. This thread auto-checks for available activity-updates at
regular intervals (currently defaults to an interval of 7
2. To prevent a collision with the user-interactive "Software Update",
synchronization in the form of mutual exclusion is used.

Please see *Usability notes* and *Design Enhancements/Changes* sections in
*[Patch]Resolution for ticket au#887* for details.

Queries :

1. The above approach has been taken from the "Feedback" feature in frame
(source == source/sugar/src/jarabe/model/feedback_collector.py)
2. Is this the right approach?
    Or some other approach (eg. cron-script) might be more appropriate?

Looking forward to replies.
