I noticed in M7 that QT software management has option "Allow change
vendor". This option but is missing in GTK software management. And on
the other side, GTK has check/uncheck box "Close window when done",
where i can set whether software management is closed after
installation/removing packages. And this is missing in QT software
management. QT it´s always closed by default. There is no option in QT
software management to set this behaviour.
Will be added these missing features? Now Qt and GTK software
managements are totally different apps. Not only they look different,
but they have different functions as well.

You can set these things in /etc/sysconfig/YaST2 and /etc/zypp/zypp.conf
respectively though.

I know i can set "solver.AllowVendorChange = true" in /etc/zypp/zypp.conf,
but i´m worried this won´t be affect on GTK YaST software management.
AFAIK, it works only via kupdateapplet and backend has to be set on ZYpp
Anyway, i don´t wanna set options via command line. Then i can start using
some hardcore distribution. I appreciate that i can everything set in the
gui options.

As for the exit action, changing the default to "summary", is more
than adding the gui options, while continuing to have a bad default. So
get to
voting ;-)

This is no doubt also. I always complained that default behaviour was
changed in 11.1. I don´t know distro which closes own software management
after installation/removing packages. Honestly, this was pretty hasty

Am feeling as if Qt and GTk software management has started gone his way.
Where´s the consistency? Not only features mentioned above aren´t the first
in which they differ.
E.g. Gtk has a long time "search as you type" findig. For Qt developers it
doesn´t have a high priority(see comment
I can´t imagine that Firefox would have different functionality, or
different button layout in Gnome, KDE, or Windows. That´s nonsense. Have yoe
tried package management for exmaple in Mandrive? There you don´t know
whether it runs under Gnome or KDE, because it looks like the same.
And it's really starting to irritate me in openSUSE.
