Oops. Now I'm facing a problem which I haven't thought about before and which I 
haven't noticed before latest commit.
Zeitgeist-daemon is running with privileges of current user, whilst yum needs 
root privileges to run, so yum plugin tries to talk to nonexistent 
zeitgeist-daemon in context of root user. As far as I see, this daemon is then 
started, however it uses database in /root/.local/share/zeitgeist. I can see 
commited events when starting GAJ as root, but not as regular user.
Now, I have no idea what to do with this. Basic possibilities are:
 * change zeitgeist-daemon behaviour to make him create his database in a 
location which regular user can read and allow daemons running in user-space to 
transparently read it and serve it's content to clients,
 * make zeitgeist-daemon running as root to proxy all the communication to all 
daemons running in contexts of non-root users,
 * do the magic and find out somehow who started current sudo or su process and 
connect to his zeitgeist-daemon (is it even possible?).

Maybe I should report new bug regarding this situation outside
zeitgeist-dataprovides? I don't know if zeitgeist-daemon guys observe
bugs reported here.

  Add support for yum

Status in Zeitgeist Data-Providers:

Bug description:
  I'm not sure if adding this to Zeitgeist makes sense, but sometimes I would 
like to see what package (and when) I've installed without opening PackageKit 
and browsing logs.
  If Zeitgeist Data-Providers team also would like this in Zeitgeist, I'm 
willing to write a plugin.
