Description Stepan Kasal 2007-08-10 10:41:52 UTC
- start pirut with a local LANG
- select tab "Browse"
- select a group
- click on the button "Optional packages"

Then each line includes the full version string (1.2.3-1.fc10.x86_64), in bold
I believe that it occupies too much space and makes the list less readable.
I suggest to print it with a regular font shape (not bold), or even with a
smaller size of print.
It might be moved to the end of the long line, parenthesized.
Or it might even be moved to a separate window which would display aditional
ifnormation for the rpm; see the proposal in bug 251663.

The same problem appears during the installation of Fedora, but since I suppose
the installer uses the same Python code, I file the bug only once.  Please clone
if necessary.

Comment 1 Stepan Kasal 2007-08-13 12:04:27 UTC
[I apologize for the wrong summary; fixed now.]

Actually, the same problem appears on all three tabs (Browse, Search, and List).
I suggest to add the version string to the "Package Details"; perhaps the first
line before the "Description" could contain a status info: version string and size.

Comment 2 Bug Zapper 2008-05-14 13:56:12 UTC
This message is a reminder that Fedora 7 is nearing the end of life. Approximately 30 (thirty) days from now Fedora will stop maintaining and issuing updates for Fedora 7. It is Fedora's policy to close all bug reports from releases that are no longer maintained. At that time this bug will be closed as WONTFIX if it remains open with a Fedora 'version' of '7'.

Package Maintainer: If you wish for this bug to remain open because you plan to fix it in a currently maintained version, simply change the 'version' to a later Fedora version prior to Fedora 7's end of life.

Bug Reporter: Thank you for reporting this issue and we are sorry that we may not be able to fix it before Fedora 7 is end of life. If you would still like to see this bug fixed and are able to reproduce it against a later version of Fedora please change the 'version' of this bug. If you are unable to change the version, please add a comment here and someone will do it for you.

Although we aim to fix as many bugs as possible during every release's lifetime, sometimes those efforts are overtaken by events. Often a more recent Fedora release includes newer upstream software that fixes bugs or makes them obsolete. If possible, it is recommended that you try the newest available Fedora distribution to see if your bug still exists.

Please read the Release Notes for the newest Fedora distribution to make sure it will meet your needs:

The process we are following is described here: http://fedoraproject.org/wiki/BugZappers/HouseKeeping

Comment 3 Jeremy Katz 2008-05-28 19:10:36 UTC
This isn't going to get changed at this point as pirut is pretty much entirely
EOL'd and only getting critical fixes for older releases.  In Fedora 9 and
later, any such concerns can be filed against PackageKit/gnome-packagekit.
