It would be nice if it would be possible to change the solver solution
at the point when the installation summary is shown and zypper prompts
whether to continue. This would allow the user to conveniently remove
unwanted packages automatically chosen for installation, add another
package, etc. This is especially needed if it is difficult to work
one's way to the solution (in case of many dependency problems, e.g.
during an upgrade).
Removing, adding, and keeping an installed version of a package could
be implemented as part of this feature request first. Further
enhancements can be done later.
During a dist-upgrade, user goes through a lot of solver problems. Then
sees something unwanted in the summary. Currently the only solution is
to quit, lock a package or change some command line options, restart
the dist-upgrade and go through all the painfull solving again. With
this feature the user would have a good chance of changing the summary
in a convenient way.
