What does this have todo with anything, doesn't the kernel version for
which a module is get put into the name part of the module? (last time I
used external modules in rpm format is some time ago). Let me rephrase:
there is no reason for mentioning the version in repoview, so let me
then advocate to not show the version which will have as a result that
the double entries are just that 100% double -> so they are a bug.

And what does a webinterface to show the contents of a repo and the
parallel installing of kernels have todo with eachother???

Please stop thinking about this from your own pov and start thinking
about our end users. The multiple versions listed in repoview will
confuse regular end users! Since repoview is very prominently linked to
as being _the_ way for users to see which packages there are this is BAD
<period> I'm sure you've got good technical reasons for listing all
versions but this is _not_ good for end users!
