I don't know how useful it is for a yum based distro
Most repo is added by added by installing a rpm file containing the
.repo file and the GPG keys or downloading a .repo file from a website
and put it into
I don't think it is a feature that a normal user will use and will be
hard to make a generic dialog that fits all the backends / dists.
For yum we will need:
baseurls (1 or more urls) or mirrorlist(1 URL)
gpgkey (if gpgcheck is enabled)
