Title: Configure a cronjob for refreshing repositories

openSUSE-11.1: Evaluation
Priority
Requester: Desirable
Projectmanager: Mandatory

Requested by: lslezak@xxxxxxxxxx
Partner organization: openSUSE.org

Description:
Autorefresh configured repositories at certain times, this could be on
certain days, or time of day, etc.
A mockup and more details are in
https://bugzilla.novell.com/show_bug.cgi?id=346966

there are some caveats I can think of requiring silent fail (for
instance, a laptop), or requiring randomization (not hitting NCC with a
volley all at the same time), but I think the idea is good.

If you think you can make it work in a reliable way, please present a
concept.
Right now PackageKit and updater applets do refresh often before
checking for updates so the system repos _are_ refreshed. So I don't
see much value in this feature (unless a concept is presented).

+ We have a concept in the automatic online update configuration.
