Re: sort in updates comments

Have you tried including the package version in the search. If you
have installed the package to test it then you should know the version
anyway or use "rpm -qi packagename" (easiest is to copy all the Source
RPM section excluding the ".src.rpm"). kernel-2.6.27.19-170.2.35.fc10
will single out the exact update. Shorter sections of the version (eg
kernel-2.6.27) will list all updates with that version.

Hope that helps


Your suggestion works, but I just thought if it was a simple code change (lists of lists in python can be sorted on the first member just by appending a .sort() to the list name, slightly more complicated for others) it would make it easier for testers to comment without the trouble of finding the exact package name if it didn't have a huge cost.

I'll use your workaround, or a search for date in the results that seems to work pretty well also.

Thanks.
