If you want to be obnoxious and obvious, which is kinda required for
most users that never fire up yast's online update, you probably want
apper to do the popping-upping.

Not sure if there's support for that in apper.

No, should probably be a cron job set to begin just prior to eol and be
persistant and obnoxious after eol.

But there is no sure way for cron to display a message. Traditionally,
it would sent an email to "root", but that would not work nowdays.

It could log entries in syslog at warning level. Wait! It could use
"wall", that would be really obnoxious! >:-)

note: many remove PackageKit/apper in favor of zypper/you/...


But a message at the start of yast online update or package manager
would be enough for most cases. Perhaps.
