Description of problem:
It would be nice if we would get informed if there are new packages in a repository or some old are gone. This could also be a new tab. Why? I am waiting for packages like istanbul in fedora-extras. I only get informed about updated, already installed packages. It also could be nice if set packages on a watchlist.
Maybe one can combine yumex with an rss feed for new packages?
But this is also an issue Fedora internally. Debian has every week news about "new and exiciting" packages. (this part is offtopic)
Version-Release number of selected component (if applicable):
Steps to Reproduce:
try to find out what new packages are in a repository since the last update.
You can use the recent column in the install view, to see what packages are new
or updated, just click the header of the recent column and only the new and
updated packages are shown.
The RSS feed is a nice idea, but the feed have to exist.
Some kind of alert list where you can add package names and then you get a
notification when something is happened with the names on the list.
I will put this one on my todo list.
RSS feed is available from http://fedoraproject.org/infofeed/
yum-utils has the necessary tools to do this. This might be a job better suited
for Pup though, moving forward for the Fedora users
Added to TODO list
Will be implemented in a future release
