Feature #308455, revision 1
Title: Easy way to refresh package database

openSUSE-11.3: Unconfirmed
Priority
Requester: Desirable

Requested by: Todd R (theblackcat)

Description:
Currently, if you want to force a refresh of your package database from within
the software management module or online update module you needto go to the
configuration menu, load the repository manager module, tell it to refresh,
then close the repository manager module.  Having an easy way to force a
refresh of the software database from within the software management module
would be much more convenient.  It could easily go in the "File" menu without
cluttering things much, there are currently only 4 items there as it is.  I
know that ideally the package manager would know when to refresh what, but it
doesn't always so it would be very convenient if users had a quick way to force
it to.
