Description of problem:
It would be useful if http://fedora.redhat.com/ (as well as http://fedoraproject.org/) could have a prominently-linked repoview-generated list of packages in Fedora Core like Fedora Extras (FE).
Currently FE has repoview enabled:
(although there is no link to either of these repoviews on http://fedora.redhat.com/projects/extras/)
For consistency the URL(s) would be:
Currently there appears to be no way to get a good human-readable overview of the packages in FC4 on a website except for looking through the RPMS directory (or using a GUI yumex or synaptic).
Version-Release number of selected component (if applicable):
Steps to Reproduce:
1. View fedora.redhat.com
Would also be useful to add Updates to this list, if possible, so you could see
at a glance the list of most recently updated FC4 packages.
"Repoview for fedora.redhat.com/packages/" as being "closed" on 21 Apr with the
a comment that "repoview will be very useful for Fedora Core as well as for
Fedora Extras", but
http://fedora.redhat.com/packages is 404.
Has any progress been made on this front? It looks like this has been
forgotten. It would certainly be nice to have this.
On a slightly related note, Thomas Chung, Seth Vidal, Luke Macken and myself
have discussed adding a listing like the one available at
http://fedoranews.org/mediawiki/index.php/Fedora_Updates to fedoraproject.org.
This would provide users a list of packages that have been updated.
Looks like Extras repoview packages have either been dropped and/or are missing,
see: bug #174357.
Jesse Keating added a repoview for Fedora devel repository. When it reaches FC5
we would have one for core too. I am closing this report. Thank you.

Which happens to be here, just had to hunt around for the URL... ;-)
Repoview has disappeared from:
repoview broke for a bit when yum's comps handling changed. This has been fixed
and repoview has been turned back on.

When will it re-appear on the site?
The next time rawhide pushes.
