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 :-))

I'm not a big fan of the idea of unpacking a list item "on mouse over" -
longer stay on such page makes me feel dizzy (in a sense: "like on stormy
What I prefer is unpacking on demand, with some arrow icon hints. Like in
jquery accordion demo:

* less information on screen
* hints on priority

Spinbox would fit excellently here:

* first implementation of enable/disable in YaST based on current
survey results

Was this really the survey result? I have to complete it and express my
disagreement :)
What was wrong with checkboxes? Isn't it an ideal UI element for values that
can only be turned on/off?

* Does the target user group member know about "priorities"? Shouldn`t
it be explained a little bit more? Tooltip?

Either tooltip, or some small help icon nearby (question mark, "What is
this?") with a tooltip
