Some folks working on fedora has been discussing the idea of providing
some additional keyword/tag metadata in the repodata. Right now it is a
pretty simple mechanism. Package names keyed to tags. Probably stored in a
simple sqlite db file that could be included in the repodata. Something
tag_id: pri key
then you can pull out pkgs based on keywords and vice-versa fairly easily.
So my questions are?
1. is there other critical info needed for something like this?
2. is this something generally useful or should we just leave it as a
I'm particularly interested in hearing from the folks working on opensuse.
