Summary: zypper RFE: parallel downloads, asynchronous download
Product: openSUSE 11.2
Version: unspecified
Platform: All
OS/Version: All
Status: NEW
Severity: Enhancement
Priority: P5 - None
Component: libzypp

A number of feature requests for zypper:

- have it do a configurable number of downloads in parallel, like the smart
package manager used to.

- provide an option to do all downloads first, then install (like smart)

^ Such operation is warranted when your internet access is time-based.

- an option to continue downloading while a package is installed (sometimes
this can take longer) in case “download-first-then-install” is not

^ And this in general should make it complete faster on the wall clock.
