Description Rahul Sundaram 2008-03-30 21:28:31 EDT
Description of problem: Software update preferences doesn't have the option I would really like which is to automatically download everything but confirm before installing Additional one would be the ability to pick between installing automatically security, both security and bug fixes. Probably a series of checkboxes: Automatically Install:  Security Fixes  Bug Fixes  Enhancements

I thought of the three checkboxes idea too, but would there ever be a situation where you would want bugfixes but not security updates?
Comment 2 Rahul Sundaram 2008-03-31 07:39:24 EDT
Very unlikely. Atleast I can't think of any. The likely options users would want is 1) Just security fixes 2) Both security and bug fixes 3) Everything
Comment 3 Richard Hughes 2008-04-15 18:36:07 EDT

Changing version to '9' as part of upcoming Fedora 9 GA. More information and reason for this action is here: http://fedoraproject.org/wiki/BugZappers/HouseKeeping
Comment 6 Richard Hughes 2008-07-04 06:09:15 EDT
I've asked the interaction people at Red Hat and they seem to think the options we have now are okay. Adding more prefs increases the code paths substantially, and I really want to concentrate on fixing all the existing bugs and use cases.
