Summary: Marking a pattern as "taboo" does not mark contained
packages as taboo
Product: openSUSE 10.2
Version: Beta 1
Platform: Other
OS/Version: Other
Status: NEW
Severity: Normal
Priority: P5 - None
Component: Installation
AssignedTo: bnc-team-screening@xxxxxxxxxxxxxxxxxxxxxx
ReportedBy: joeshaw@xxxxxxxxxx

The "taboo" marking in YaST gives the impression to the user that under no
circumstances will those packages be installed. However, if you mark a pattern
as taboo, it merely unselects the contained packages, which means that they can
later be pulled in as dependencies (and irritatingly were for me later).

It would be better to change the "taboo" marking to simply unselected if the
behavior is different.

Logs from /var/log/YaST2 are attached to bug 215352.
