[New: openFATE 320175] YaST sw_install should gain 'application centric' view
Feature added by: Dominique Leuenberger (dimstar)

Feature #320175, revision 1
Title: YaST sw_install should gain 'application centric' view

Requested by: Dominique Leuenberger (dimstar)
Partner organization:

YAST sw_single is very powerful when it comes to package management... but the
'standard user' cares for applications, not for packages - those are just
technicalities. With the introduction of AppStream metadata into the
distribution (auto-generated on media creation) we gained support to better
product descriptions. Various upstreams already ship an appdata.xml file, which
describes the application in their words and can reference screenshots - making
for a much better user interface.

It would be great if YaST could pick up on this as well and either offer
Applications as a new (default?) view of sw_single or introduce a new module -
a software center (not a package manager)
