Title: prevent newbies from adding wrong repos

- openSUSE Distribution: New
+ openSUSE Distribution: Done

Partner organization:

When thinking of a way how to prevent new users from adding dangerous
repos (wrong version or factory) it came to my mind that it would be
quite easy to do this. When adding the repo it should be easy to search
alias, name and url for words which do not correspond with the version
currently in use. For example for openSUSE 12.2 these expressions could
be 11.4, 12.1, factory and so on. To allow advanced users to use these
repos one could add an option where this flag can be changed. For
example a parameter called allow_blacklist. Whether the value of this
parameter ist set to 0 or 1 one is allowed to add these repos or not.

+ all the risks they are taking by adding them.
