Red Hat Bugzilla – Bug 439698
plain listing of packages
Last modified: 2013-03-13 01:43:05 EDT
Description of problem:
There is no sorted listing of all packages without going through different
groups unlike Pirut which has this functionality in the third tab.
I use this to figure out which packages to remove after I have tried out several
just as an example of where this could be useful.
So, you basically want a "Show all packages" button? Where would this logically
go in the UI?
Yep. Well in Pirut it shows up in a additional tab. Somewhat similar to the UI
of pk-application before 1.10.
What about in the group selector as "All"?
That would work as well.
I've added the GetPackages method into the backends.

I think this serves my purpose pretty well. Firefox like search as you type
would be a very good enhancement.
We can't do search as you type, as that would be a bazillion available packages
to add, cache and then search as you type. What about search-as-you-type for
Search is probably the most common operation that is going to happen with the
app and shouldn't be relegated to just a search box. If we can cache more
upfront, that might help.
Search as you type for previous queries would be a improvement too.
I'll close this as the original bug has been fixed. Bringing up search-as-you
type on the mailing list is probably the best plan.
