I disagree  a bit - I've been making some fairly steady progress on
significant bits - right now it reads in the metadata, parses it, and
can calculate the list of updates/new pkgs/etc. I also just finished
writing the bits that handle the cli parsing for packagenames like:
foo-1.1-1.i386.rpm or foo-1.1-1 or foo-1.1 or foo.i386

There is still work to go but there are two hurdles that I have to  get
beyond and I'll be in a better place for alphas.

Also summer is almost upon us for duke and that typically speaks
positively to my available time. Recently I got setback b/c I wanted to
speed up the metadata importing so I spent some time playing with
xmlReader interface - gained about 25% but I think there are other
things I can do - not sure _what_ yet but "things" :)

You have not accurately predicted reality bring your shovel and we'll
see what you got ;)
