Description Diego 2009-07-05 13:34:03 EDT
Description of problem:
When searching for "KDE" in Gnome-Packagekit you get tons of results. However the most relevant is the group "KDE K Desktop Environment". Unfortunately gnome-packagekit lists it "in the crowd". An idea could be listing the results for the group search at the top of the list, maybe distinguishing them in a graphical manner by the rest of the results in a way that the user immediately knows that the firsts are groups of packages, and the others are single packages.

Version-Release number of selected component (if applicable):

How reproducible:

Steps to Reproduce:
1. search using a keyword that gives out both groups and single packages.
Actual results:
Results of different types are mixed up.

Expected results:
Results are divided by type.
Comment 1 Richard Hughes 2009-08-20 11:48:25 EDT
My reservation is that this breaks the alphabetical ordering.
Comment 2 Diego 2010-04-25 15:57:39 EDT
I can't really see the point of listing groups among regular packages. They're not the same thing, why should one treat them as if they are?

I'm just curious about the rationale behind this decision.
