openSUSE-11.3: Evaluation by product manager

Requested by: Vincent Untz (vuntz)

Partner organization:

It's important to be able to run once after all packages have been
installed a command (instead of running the command after each of x
packages getting installed, which would make the process much slower).
That's basically a post-transaction trigger.
For background, see
and especially comment #14 from Stanislav. (note that this is work that
should be done in upstream rpm, not as patches)

This is an important feature for dist upgrade IMO. If we want to
support "zypper dup", we need to handle this.

I have no "PM" position on this, although technically it may make sense
(some of the items, like the Gtk cache, can probably be helped by using
less-broken caching on the Gnome front - I keep hearing complaints
about it).
I will support Engineering's priority. Setting "important" for now.
If this is to be done, the "upstream" comment in the description
regarding RPM is absolutely mandatory.

#3: Ján Kupec (jkupec) (2009-11-19 20:35:02) (reply to #1)
We now do support 'zypper dup' but this is still missing. At the very
least we should make users aware of the workaround with manually
setting YAST_IS_RUNNING and running suseconfig, until this is done.
