I agree.  I like specific implementation issues too.  I would like to
see some improvements to the already much improved update/add software
system.  I would start with 1) highlighting where new software has
been installed in the Gnome menu (or KDE) on my Fedora box 2) being
able to determine which repository a software package to be added is
located 3) be able to add/remove repositories from Pirut and 4) a pipe
dream (whatever that is), of having small deltarpms/smartrpms or
something new to minimize bandwidth.

I have a feeling these issues are already being tackled in some form
except for the project of having a modern update system that creates
the smallest possible update tailored specifically to every user's
machine.  That would be an amazing technical achievement.
