Description of problem:
Show overall status such as the total number of packages available in the repo,
packages installed, packages available as updates etc
Synaptic does this at it's toolbar and IIRC provides a summary option too.
Can we get this information from yum? Do you think such information is useful to
# yum list lists every package in all the enabled repositories
# yum list installed lists installed ones
# yum list available lists non installed ones
# yum list extras shows packages installed that are not part of the enabled
# package-cleanup (yum-utils) has a number of options to show issues like
duplicate packages in the repositories
I find a good summary useful. Might ask on list whether others find this a
useful feature too.
I don't think we need to show this data, sorry.
