The reason I ask is that i am working on a gui front end for a package
management system.  I wanted to know the current devel state of up2date.

My initial work is porting sysnaptic to python/pygtk.  How does the
development community feel about writing some of the wigets in C++ and
then wrapping them?  I am looking at doing this for reasons of

The package and dependency caches will be based closely on yum (if not
directly using yum code extended for interactive use)

On the back side I'm looking a the existing up2date code to allow
different types of repos to be read and down loaded.

The basic set of event will be.

1. Create pkgStatus list to include all known packages and their statue
ie name, epoch, version, location ,installStatue

2. Via gui interaction a transaction set is developed ie package
install, update, or remove

3. Do a dry run transaction set test -- paranoid

4. Do transaction set
