order of supplied regex's, 1st regex *always* being essentially
One might consider separate container classes for
1) Raw Hide, Cooker, etc (i.e. bleeding edge)
3) Powertools vs (what Mandrake calls it)
and the ability to configurably extend the container classes.
Rationale is that mix-n-match sources for rpm downloads is increasingly a
between distro's and even between releases, so the goal should be less far
discovery of candidates, rather more targeted information delivery to user.
This is an rpmfind issue not a gnorpm one. It may well go away when/if gnorpm
switches to using rpm-apt as its basis
I moved this to the gnome bugzilla so that the Gnorpm maintainers will see it.
The bug is now at:
