Red Hat Bugzilla – Bug 844741
Allow to support "promoted" packages
Last modified: 2014-01-21 18:23:15 EST
Description of problem:
F17 now supports Jboss AS7. When I open "Add/remove software"(*) and then
enter jboss in the search field, I get tons of related packages, while the one
I am looking for is "JBoss AS7".
There should be a way to list the AS7 base package at the top of the list,
as this is what most users want to install. E.g. via a flag in the rpm
and then listing those entries with a flag at the top.
Or via sorting dependencies below packages that are not dependencies ( but then I think this may be brittle, as the result depends a lot of the input query).
*) In above cateogry I choose 'yum', but a new Fedora user will not know that
"Add/Remove software" may have any relation to yum and will not be able to file a bug against that category.
Version-Release number of selected component (if applicable):

This message is a reminder that Fedora 17 is nearing its end of life.
Approximately 4 (four) weeks from now Fedora will stop maintaining
and issuing updates for Fedora 17. It is Fedora's policy to close all
bug reports from releases that are no longer maintained. At that time
this bug will be closed as WONTFIX if it remains open with a Fedora
'version' of '17'.
Package Maintainer: If you wish for this bug to remain open because you
plan to fix it in a currently maintained version, simply change the 'version'
to a later Fedora version prior to Fedora 17's end of life.
Bug Reporter: Thank you for reporting this issue and we are sorry that
we may not be able to fix it before Fedora 17 is end of life. If you
would still like to see this bug fixed and are able to reproduce it
against a later version of Fedora, you are encouraged change the
'version' to a later Fedora version prior to Fedora 17's end of life.
Although we aim to fix as many bugs as possible during every release's
lifetime, sometimes those efforts are overtaken by events. Often a
more recent Fedora release includes newer upstream software that fixes
bugs or makes them obsolete.
Fedora 17 changed to end-of-life (EOL) status on 2013-07-30. Fedora 17 is
no longer maintained, which means that it will not receive any further
security or bug fix updates. As a result we are closing this bug.
If you can reproduce this bug against a currently maintained version of
Fedora please feel free to reopen this bug against that version.
Thank you for reporting this bug and we are sorry it could not be fixed.
