Description Jef Spaleta 2002-04-12 16:50:51 EDT

Description of problem:
I would like to use up2date to download src.rpm for rpm's I already have
installed (say for recompiling for cpu optimizations).  Right now you can only
download src.rpm's when you download a binary.  It would be nice to be able to
get the src for any package whether its installed or not. 

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

How reproducible:

Steps to Reproduce:


Additional info:
Being able to specify a different download location for src and binary packages
would be a plus...but I'd more than settle with just being able to use up2date
to get src for already installed packages.

In addition, I'd like the ability to select source RPMs for downloading from a
list of RPMs (in case I need to download a large number of binaries and only
want 1 or 2 source modules.) Thank you very much for your help with this.

cc and update ver so it doesn't drop off any radar screens for being against a beta
