Subject: [packagekit] Adding and removing repos

Should PackageKit provide an abstract way of adding or removing a repo?

What information is needed for each of the backends for a new repo
entry? For instance yum needs:

name, baseurl, mirrorlist, gpgkey, gpgcheck

and possibly a few more I'm forgetting. What do the other backends need?
Should we even try to abstract this?



Zypp needs just a name and repourl
