Nothing else.

But that is not true! It returns 'some', not 'the best' in any terms.
'The best' would mean the latest version, the best arch, the highest
priority, etc... But currently it just select 'some' (well, the
installed arch is considered).

No, the set is ordered!

What still puzzles me, though, is why theObj() returns different objects
if i change repo priorities (like in bug #437854):

Of course, as the repo priority influences the what might get selected.
The candidate (and also theObj) may change at any time.

I understand that, but where is the code doing this currently?


struct AVOrder; // functor

typedef std::set<PoolItem,AVOrder> AvailableItemSet;

typedef AvailableItemSet::iterator available_iterator;
typedef AvailableItemSet::const_iterator available_const_iterator;
typedef AvailableItemSet::size_type available_size_type;
