Pup Import Key dialog formatting error and unclear to joe user
Last modified: 2007-11-30 17:11:33 EST
Description of problem:
Occasionally during a pup update cycle I see dialogs such as:
The package xml-commons-resolver - 1.1-3jpp.noarch is signed with a key from
JPackage Project (JPP Official Keys) <firstname.lastname@example.org> (0xC431416D).
Would you like to import this key?
I have two problems with this dialog:
(1) Minor: Some HTML style formatting is sneaking into the display text.
(2) Major: This dialog provides absolutely no guidance for a new (or
experienced) user. Do I need this key? Can I update without it? If I click
cancel, do I still get my update? Or did I just cancel all of my updates? If I
click import, where is it stored and who gets to look at it? etc. etc. etc.
I am an experienced user and a designer of security protocols, and I have no
idea what this dialog really means or the ramifications of my two click choices.
Version-Release number of selected component (if applicable):
(not sure if this applies to pup too, but rpm -q pup returns no result)
The formatting is improved. If you have concrete suggestions on how to improve
the dialog without making it ten pages long, feel free to open a separate issue
(or reopen this one)
