I have completed the second draft of the PackageKit chapter for the 
Fedora 12 Deployment Guide, which you can see here:


I have incorporated a lot of much-appreciated feedback from Richard 
Hughes and Matthias Clasen of the PackageKit team and Rahul 
Kavalapara into this draft.

Notable changes:

* all screenshots have been improved and some added
* discussion of PackageKit's architecture has been moved to the end 
of the chapter, though linked to from the opening paragraph
* explanation of the architecture corrected and expanded
* filter descriptions corrected and expanded (including Only native 
* TOC entries streamlined

Remaining issues:

* I still need a screenshot of the proper Authenticate (for update 
purposes) dialog on F12 Alpha (if someone can provide this, at full 
size in GIMP's .xcf format if possible)
* not all text in Log and Architecture sections is formatted (read: 
bold) yet (waiting for review of accuracy)

Review and feedback is welcome from everyone. For details on how to 
get involved in the Fedora 12 Deployment Guide update, see the
