Experimental openSUSE App store!

Hi, yesterday when I check my mailing list subscriptions. I found this.

http://dl.dropbox.com/u/294274/software.o.o/package-view.png

It’s a mock up. and build service team is working on it:

[opensuse-buildservice] Reworking the software search page](http://lists.opensuse.org/opensuse-buildservice/2012-03/msg00001.html)

[opensuse-buildservice] Reworking the software search, part II](http://lists.opensuse.org/opensuse-buildservice/2012-03/msg00053.html)

[opensuse-buildservice] Reworking the enduser software search part III,](http://lists.opensuse.org/opensuse-buildservice/2012-03/msg00193.html)

Now the page is like:

So guys what do you think?

You can chit-chat here, and if you have creative/constructive ideas please also post it to the original thread, so developers could see and implement them.

Looks promising!

Just make sure it can figure out what repos you already have and so doesn’t add any unnecessarily.
And please, if someone searches for VLC, don’t have it pointing to VideoLan or kde unstable (test it yourself now)

Looks promising indeed. I hope the devs take Caf’s remarks in consideration

I don’t like it.

It pushes users to use “one click”, which we know is prone to problems,
like adding duplicated repos.

Useful links are colored gray, so users do not click on them.

It doesn’t give links to add the repos, only to the packages.

You have to click on several places to get something useful, unless you are
interested in the buildservice itself.

What about an administration page that allows you to add or select which repo’s to choose from?

Ubuntu gets by this by running locally, where it can grab what repos you have included. Any feasable way to have the site pull that information (with or without requesting authorization)?
