Right, there's different sort of warnings, and the probably need to be
handled differently. The code is in src/gpk-watch.c and src/gpk-client.c

Three logs actually, a log in messages if it's configured in the config
file, a debug log in /var/log/PackageKit, but most importantly in the
transaction database, which you can see with gpk-log. There's a
