Description:
You perhaps remember the hacks Benjamin did to support "click and
install" packages (similar to Click'n run) [1]
Benjamin has another article in his blog that is worth to read.
He has been providing a wepage to search packages from repositories
like packman and build service. Now he presents an architecture to
desentralize the system, using web services an indexers, and he shows
working prototypes of YaST modules for searching, and others like web
and irc-bot clients
http://blogs.warwick.ac.uk/bweber/entry/package_search_developments/
I hope we can provide a strategy and roadmap to integrate these cool
ideas and _code_.

For 10.3 the installer should be able to make use of an external list
of repositories. I suggest to host such a list at
http://packages.opensuse-community.org/ together with the search
engine, which is already there.

#3: Klaas Freitag (kfreitag) (2007-07-12 10:46:54)
Implementation on openSUSE BS already started, Adrian knows the
details.

#4: Adrian Schröter (adriansuse) (2007-07-12 11:30:04)
We work on two approaches atm:
* YaST will support (thanks to mvidner) additional repository offers
during installation. The list gets hosted on our servers, the open
question is how to maintain this list.
* The build service End-User interface will offer .ymp files based on
pattern submissions for easy installation.

#5: Stanislav Visnovsky (visnov) (2007-07-30 20:13:09) (reply to #4)
Adrian, please, drive this. The feature for YaST should be done now
(let me know if anything is missing).

#6: Michael Loeffler (sprudel24) (2007-11-22 11:26:30)
This sounds like very useful. And it might be possible the community
(in this case Benji) helps implementing this.

#7: Andreas Jaeger (a_jaeger) (2008-06-06 10:56:28)
Apparently not done - please reject and postpone for 11.1.

#9: Adrian Schröter (adriansuse) (2008-06-18 17:08:16)
This is something what we should bind to the new upcomming software
portal. The software portal will be the End-User interface for searcing
and installing software and replace http://software.opensuse.org/search
. However it is still in development and not yet set up. Therefore I am
unsure if this can happen in time for 11.1.
On the other side, the 1-click-installation and integration into the
web interface is done since quite some time. The user can use the cool
technologies from Benjamin since 10.3.

#10: Andreas Jaeger (a_jaeger) (2010-12-02 15:31:30)
This should be done with a software portal.

#11: Martin Seidler (pistazienfresser) (2012-03-19 09:09:39) (reply to
#10)
And a software portal with this features is now in the testing/implantation
phase(s).
