Repoman ? Yumex ? Pirut ?

Thomas Canniot, It is nice to see somebody is working on making pirut shine.

The changes is a step in the right direction, It is nice to be able to select what repositories to be enabled in the current session, but i don’t think the repo management (adding, deleting etc) shall be in pirut, the repo management shall be in a separate tool (in System -> Administration) there could be a button to launch the repo tool in pirut. I talked with Jeremy Katz when he started to work on pirut, because i wanted to merge yumex and pirut at that time, but it didn’t happen because the scope was different. pirut was meant to be the counter part to the package selection in anaconda and yumex was a more advanced package manager with more advanced set of features. The scope for pirut was a simple and easy tool to select and install/remove packages in the same way as in anaconda. if the scope for pirut has changed then it maybe is time to look at a merge of the projects again.
