Description of problem:
pirut doesn't let you know which repo a package is from, it seemlessly
merges all the repos you have defined, which is annoying and makes it
impossible to install all of Core (for example).

Version-Release number of selected component (if applicable):

How reproducible:

Steps to Reproduce:
1. Launch pirut
Actual results:
All packages from all repos shown as one list.

Expected results:
There should be a repo column so you can see what repo a package is from.
You should also be able to list by repo, to make is easy to install all
of a single repo, for example Core.

Additional info:
The installation doesn't let you install the whole CD set as was possible
with previous versions, making the limitations of pirut worse.

I know there is no possibility of this feature being added in FC5, but 
what about FC6 ?
Comment 1 Jeremy Katz 2006-04-10 14:57:42 EDT
But what's really the difference between the repos?  And do updates count as
part of Core?  The issue starts to get very confused very quickly and so it's
easier to not even try to have a made up difference between them.
Comment 2 Ian Laurie 2006-04-10 17:11:49 EDT
The difference is that some are official and "sanctioned", like Extras, and
others are not (like the multimedia ones I have so I can play files that
Fedora officially won't play).

It leads to monumental package clutter.

And if there is no difference, why have Extras ?  Why not just lump the lot
together ?

I think the repo source *does* matter and pirut should let you know, IMHO.
