Description Joseph Shraibman 2002-10-30 22:51:23 EST

Description of problem:
During package choosing in text mode the user is forced to use a little box with
a tree menu. There is much screen real estate that is unused. It is not necc. to
make the user press f2 to get a package description since there is enough space
for at least a short description.

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

How reproducible:
Comment 1 Michael Fulbright 2002-10-31 12:44:34 EST
We do not plan on investing in the text mode interface at this time.
Comment 2 Joseph Shraibman 2002-10-31 16:02:46 EST
You could at least make sure it uses all the vertial real estate for browsing
the tree in the scroll box. That should be a trivial change.
