Version: unspecified
Platform: Other
OS/Version: Other

Severity: Enhancement
Priority: P5 - None

As far as the leading or tailing slashes are concerned it amazes me that
the SUSE folks haven't written the code such that it could be entered
either way. Parsing the line as entered by the human and assembling
it to the expected input should be quite easy to do.

Furthermore, why can't it just be one line?
e.g.http://ftp.skynet.be/pub/packman/suse/10.2/
Why do *I* have to pick ftp, http, https, etc ???
Why do *I* have to split the url into three pieces ???

Carl recommends :
"First, use Konqueror to browse there and confirm a directory for 10.2
exists:"

So why can't I just paste the url into the yast screen.
Make it easy for me.
