Please find an idea of repo module UI at:

The main differences to the current UI are:
* compliance with basic concept of overviews as shown on (OK, the edit string and delete functionality is missing, but I am sure you`ll figure it out :-))
* less information on screen
* hints on priority
* first implementation of enable/disable in YaST based on current survey results

My usability questions are:
* What do you think about the mock up?
* What does "Keep downloaded packages" mean?
* Does the target user group member know what the term "repository" is? I doubt that.
* Does the target user group member know about "priorities"? Shouldn`t it be explained a little bit more? Tooltip?

Looking forward to your comments!
