On Sat, Aug 09, 2008 at 02:11:43PM +0200, Florian Kulzer was heard to say:
- I would like to be able to declare "favorites" among packages, to
guide conflict resolution.
I was actually working on this a few weeks ago but I got sidetracked
by the fact that the GTK+ interface was starting to become interesting
to hack on...
I was looking at something like this:
// To reject a package completely, like pressing "r" on
// all its versions:
// To reject a particular version, like pressing "r" on it:
// To always take a package over alternatives:
// To always take a particular package version over alternatives:
// We can use patterns too. Maybe we want to prefer German docs:
// Weights can be adjusted, too. Give a bonus to emacs and
// a penalty to vi:
Ooh, that will be nice to have, thanks a lot!
(Also, I really like the Monty-Pythonesque absurd humor in the last example.)
