Title: Add Package-Wishlist as 'Products' Component

openFATE: Evaluation
Requester: Important

Requested by: Lars Vogdt (lrupp)

The current solution for openSUSE users to suggest new packages for
inclusion in openSUSE is currently a bit complicated and diverted in
many places:
* see the Wislists ( in the Wiki
* see the Bugzilla ( of openSUSE-
* see Novells Bugzilla (
* see the openSUSE-Forums and Mailinglists...
A possible solution with the new openFATE could be to unify the process
to request new packages for openSUSE on one single place: openFATE! To
make requests of new packages easy, someone should be able to file a
request against a "Product" named "New packages" or "Package Wishlist".
Perhaps it's possible to create a simple Wizard for this special
product in the future, including:
* At least two mandatory fields for packagename and upstream URL
* and a simple "search for pending requests" after entering the two
mandatory fields to avoid duplicates.

Adding a new product "Package wishlist" is easy. Would this be useful
as a first step, or do we need the full feature implemented at once?

My intention was a "new product", yes. I think this should cover most
of the requests and make it easier for packagers to find interesting

+ Product "Package Wishlist" added.
