Option 1:
------------------------------
Do nothing. Accept status quo from upstream. Possibly talk to pinheiro
and/or dantti about making the icon more "visible" for future releases.

Advantages: No extra work, consistency with other (KPK using) distros like
Fedora and Kubuntu (I think, haven't tried).
Disadvantage: "Updates available" icon remains easily overlooked.
Why on earth this icon is easily overlooked? Seriously, guys, an icon
with big green arrow among monochrome icons? Right now I also use
Fedora and appearing of updates icon never gets overlooked.=)
Option 2:
-----------------------
We could use an icon from kupdateapplet instead:

http://www.opensuse-guide.org/tmp/kupdateapplet_yellow.png

Advantage: Highly "visible" icon, consistent with older openSUSE versions.
Disadvantage: Extra work, not consistent with KDE looks and other distros.
Not an option. Oxygen theme provides enough icons that are "visible"
enough, see Option 3 ;)
Option 3:
--------------------
We could use a different Oxygen icon - which is more craving of attention.
E.g.:
http://www.opensuse-guide.org/tmp/emblem-important.png
http://www.opensuse-guide.org/tmp/security-medium.png
http://www.opensuse-guide.org/tmp/preferences-desktop-notification-bell.png
http://www.opensuse-guide.org/tmp/preferences-desktop-notification.png

Advantages: Icon is not overlooked, integrates in the look of KDE
Disadvantages: Extra work, inconsistent with other distros.

I prefer option 3, but mainly because I think the icons look more kde-ish.
Nuno seems very reluctant to change it to anything visible
https://bugs.kde.org/show_bug.cgi?id=264051#c1 (link thanks to martin)
Maybe we can get other distributions opinion about the visibility?
At least Nuno is aware of changes needed. My proposal is to stick with
whatever upstream provides, but if changing that nice icon is really
urgent then have smth like security-medium.png
