Feature changed by: Martin Vidner (mvidner) Feature #312840, revision 2 Title: Evaluate libzypp thread safety
Hackweek VII: Unconfirmed Priority Requester: Desirable
Requested by: Michael Andres (mlandres) Partner organization: openSUSE.org
Description: The are features like FATE#120340 asking for decoupling download and installation, also ideas to speed up initial repository refresh and loading by using parallelism. But before this we need a minimum amount of thread safety in libzypp. I'd like to investigate if and how this is possible.
