We may want to keep the default value the same, i.e.:

my $notify = $dccfg->{notify_updates} // ($info && $info->{status} eq 'Active');

or if it's important that the perl "boolean" is stricly 0 or 1 then:

my $notify_default = ($info && $info->{status} eq 'Active') ? 1 : 0;
my $notify = $dccfg->{notify_updates} // $notify_default;


(the following is actually meant for the pve-cluster patch):
I'd really prefer using a colon for new config property entries, and I can imagine
that there will be more such switches in the future, so maybe start out with a format
sting (like migration is there) and have something like:

'notify: package-updates=1'

what do you think?
