In my opinion, all results should be displayed. Whether official or not. This was also the case before 15.3. And you should let the user decide what he wants.
Ack. Hiding the non-official repos would make the tool essentially useless. With just official repos, it couldn't do much more than "zypper search" + "zypper install" would be able to achieve.
Yeah I guess that's part of my point, if as a project we decide that we don't want to push 3rd party repo's then maybe we don't really need a tool like software.o.o, sure it's nice to have but the project won't fall apart and won't be less useable without it.
Not WE don't want. YOU don't want.
Third party was Show since very long time.
Are Devel repos third-party ,too? Without this also s.o.o not useless.
We need a tool to search for packages, so we can add repos we need. Without s.o.o I can not find such repo.
If people actually want it then they can work on it but maybe the better question is what packages are "general users" rather then "power users" actually using from 3rd party repos and can we get those into the distros they use so they don't actually need the tool.
S.o.o is the first place to search for software. And the first place for user who search a distro to look if the program which they need is in it. And the first place to search for repos to include in zypper
