Description Mike MacCana 2004-02-02 18:28:31 EST
From Bugzilla Helper: 
User-Agent: Mozilla/5.0 (compatible; Konqueror/3.1; Linux) 
 
Description of problem: 
It'd be really useful to have a GUI for configuring up2date's sources 
file - even admins who use only official Red Hat packages may find it 
useful to have their own 'dir' type repository. 
 
Version-Release number of selected component (if applicable): 
 
 
How reproducible: 
Always 
 
Steps to Reproduce: 
1.Note the niftiness of the latest up2date in RHEL 3 and Fedora, and 
admire the the lovely people responsible. This program is clean like 
horse, and not dirty like zebra. 
2.Marvel as the sources file as you edit it 
3.Wish everyone knew about this - its damn useful. Putting it in 
front of new users faces by having a config tool included would be 
great.

Internal RFE bug #115122 entered; will be considered for future releases.
Comment 2 Paul Nasrat 2004-04-15 04:23:23 EDT
Would system-config-packages not be the correct gui to add this
functionality under?  Just a thought.
Comment 3 Mike MacCana 2004-04-16 05:15:03 EDT
Depends - s-c-p is designed for installing software but doesn't use
up2date's repository backends to do it, up2date has a GUI focused on a
different task but has the right backends. 

Ideally they should probably share more code.

RFE was deferred; so deferring this one.
