Re: Pirut: Edit -> Repositories

I purposed it a couple of times to Jeremy, most of the things pirut and yumex does, is the same, installing package groups and find and install/remove selected packages. there are both build on the top of the yum api, but there is some differences. pirut tries to be more simple, with the same look as the package selection as in anaconda. Yumex add more advanced features like selecting what repositories to use and also it is more verbose (I like to see what is going on ) and i have tried to made it as responsive as possible. (I have done some ugly threaded stuff to update gui). A merge would be fine to me, but it is mostly about where we want to go with the package manager in Fedora, do we want a simple tools or do we want tools with lot of possibilities for the more advanced user.

Well I understand the original arguments against it which I have been supportive of but it looks like the tools are converging. Whatever advanced features are in Yumex end up being requested against Pirut.

I would say there is more value in merging together now.
