I have done a little thinking about what could be useful to have in the
packagekit backend API.
* get-group-list : Get a list groups found in the repositories.
To make it possible to make dynamic group view in a frontend client.
(search-group should be used to get the packages in the groups)
groupname<tab>translated group describtion
called text editors, these are programs that allow you to create and
edit files. These include Emacs and Vi."
*get-packages<filter> : get list of packages
filter could be installed, available, recent (newly updated/added
available packages), extras (packages install but not found in repo)
This could be used if someone will make package manager gui the show all
installed/available packages (yumex, pirut, synaptic etc)
Comments, please and other suggestion there could be useful in tha
