I just want to code a easy way to install things, not try to break any 
patent, i will not include anything illegal into yumex, but people 
located i place where software patents don't exist, can make a wizard 
plugin to install the stuff hosted in places like livna or freshrpms.
I same way as yum and rpm can be used to installed patent releated 
stuff, but it is not the purpose of the application.
      
It's already possible for a user to click-install a rpm that adds 
many repo entries without the need for a wizard.  After that 
calling up yumex to install whatever packages are desired is easy.
    

What you want is the package install metafile thingy I recommended in
the long painful ESR thread. Just a text file with a list of packages to
pull in. Give it an extension and a mime type, and associate it so you
can click on one in a web browser and have it open in yumex/pirut. Then
with two clicks you can install whatever. Something like this:

[enablerepo]
livna

[install]
xorg-x11-drv-nvidia
kmod-nvidia

Or maybe reduce it to a single click:

-----BEGIN PGP SIGNED MESSAGE-----
Hash: SHA1

releasepkg=http://rpm.livna.org/livna-release-5.rpm
gpgkey=http://rpm.livna.org/RPM-LIVNA-GPG-KEY

[enablerepo]
livna

[install]
xorg-x11-drv-nvidia
kmod-nvidia
  
It was something like that i was thinking of.
