Description Owen Carter 2008-12-23 04:57:42 UTC
PackageKit 0.3.12-1 on Fedora10/Gnome2.24.10 
(I'm not sure if this is gnome specific, apologies if I should be submitting elsewhere)

Minor usability enhancement: Make the text from descriptions in the update viewer selectable / cun-n-paste'able. 

(On my system at least) the update descriptions in the update viewer do not allow selection and copy to the clipboard, (the hyperlinks in text function correctly). This caused me a bit of grief when I wanted cut-n-paste the notes associated with an mkinitrd update which contained some instructions and commands to be run manually post-update. I wanted to save this to a text file so that I could finalise things later, not being able to copy the text prevented this, and seems like a weird restriction.
