The issue is where to put the data on the screen and how to keep from
confusing the user. We could definitely say 'total installed size' in
the total summary but putting installed size next to download size for
each package just eats up valuable screen real-estate on a console.

So why not...

For removing or examining installed packages:

===================================================================================
Package Arch Version Repository Installed Size ===================================================================================
Removing:
vixie-cron              x86_64     4:4.2-3.fc8      installed         665 k

Transaction Summary
=============================================================================
Install 0 Package(s) Update 0 Package(s) Remove 1 Package(s) Is this ok [y/N]:


~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~

For downloading:

==================================================================================
Package Arch Version Repository Download Size ==================================================================================
Installing:
vixie-cron              x86_64     4:4.2-3.fc8      junior            100 k

Transaction Summary
=============================================================================
Install 1 Package(s) Update 0 Package(s) Remove 0 Package(s) Total download size: 100 k
Is this ok [y/N]:

unless i'm reading this wrong.
that's what it is, now.

-sv


Nope.  I'm suggesting removing the ambiguity

One is "installed size"

The other is "download size"

and for a mix-and-match transaction?

yum shell
remove foo
install bar
update baz
run

what should it show?

-sv



Not sure I follow. Most users have never heard of yum shell. I am advocating changing the scenarios above.
