This sounds like a very cool project. I just don't like that it was
said to be targeted for newbies, and not meant as a replacement for the
current Yast integrated package manager. Why won't you? What's so
special about advanced users?
You'll need to allow the user to make dependencies decisions anyway
(eg: "If you remove 'gtk', the following packages will also be removed:
- X - Y - .... Sure?"). You probably want to allow the user to choose a
particular version if more than one is available anyway. You'll probably
also want the user to see the package files anyway.

Why those languages?
It would make sense to use YCP, since you get Qt, GTK and ncurses
interfaces for free with a common code. Dunno of its internet
capabilities, but at least the UI would need work (particularly the
lists and tree API need a re-design). You can count with me to implement
those new specifications on yast-gtk (especially if it means ditching
If you do go with Yast, code it on YCP. If you don't, just code it as a
separate program. Don't go with a middle solution like the current one.
Its just complexity for no gain.
