At the moment, it checks whether it is allowed to run (per host), and 
when the last time it has been run, when you start the frontend.  It 
will only run if it has not updated in over a month.  It can only be 
enabled by going into the frontend configuration wizard.  It can be 
triggered manually through the backend web server, but the backend does 
not automatically run it at this time.  I intend to clean up this 
behavior for 0.26.

At the moment, there is actually a specific compile-time check such that 
it will only run if on Linux.  Smolt was actually written for Fedora, 
and MythDora users have been running it for years, but there hasn't been 
a whole lot of effort towards collecting similar information from 
non-Linux systems.
