Description Jack Tanner 2008-05-19 08:50:50 UTC
In no particular order, comments with reference to 0.1.12-10.20080505.fc9 : - All fields in the detail view (Type, Version, Updates, etc.) should be copyable via mouse highlight. - The Description field should be word-wrapped. - Rename 'Version' field to 'Installed'. - Rename 'Updates' field to 'Update', singular. - The update type icon is too prominent. It could be a faded out background underneath the package name and description, for example. - Security updates should be sorted first (just like they are in the Overview pane of Update Viewer).

From frequent use of gpk-update-viewer I'd find some of the mentioned proposals useful; especially, the mouse-selectable/-copyable texts in fields and the word-wrapped Description field. Fedora pkg maintainers are asked to provide users useful information about the update: some packagers provides not only item-by-item list but also a real-word description in full-sentences in paragraphs and then one has to horizontally scroll, which I always found passion-killing. gnome-packagekit-0.3.13-1.fc10.i386 What's your POV in this, Rich?

This is pretty much fixed these days. Feel free to file new bug reports for individual problems that remain with the latest version.
