Subject: [Fou4s-devel] SuSE 10.1 support

Hi, Unfortunately SuSE has changed the format of the update
descriptions to a new -- XML based -- format. I've received
an awk-based xml parser from a user which should make it
rather easy to parse the XML files without additional

Unfortunately though, I'm in the process of finishing my
masters thesis and don't have much time to work on fou4s :(

If anyone is interested in implementing a new parser - just
contact me :)



See the forum on Smart Package Manager - I use this on
SuSE 9.2 pro as well as fou4s or YOU.

Not tested smart package manager today but it has been
working well recently.


In theory, theory and practice are the same;
in practice they are not.
