Description Tomasz Chrzczonowicz 2009-09-13 12:21:04 UTC
It might perhaps make gpk-log more useful if the packages that were explicitly selected for instalation by the user were distinguished from those that PackageKit installed as their dependencies.


1. One might want to review the software log to check what particular apps/packages he installed, for the purposes of:

a. adding them to kickstart files. servicepacks without the need of pasting in all the dependencies.
b. using yum plugin remove-with-leaves to quickly remove the installed package with its dependencies rather than searching and cherry-picking all of them or typing all of them in the command line. 

Possible solutions:

1. Highlighting particular package
2, Adding filter like ones in gpk-application
3. Different "Details" field syntax. e.g. <action><packages selected by user>&<dependencies>.

Sure, this is something we need to do. Needs API changes tho. If you're willing to help with patches and testing that would be most welcome. Thanks.

Sorry for the impersonal message, and fingers crossed your issue no longer happens. Thanks.
