Go ahead. It is all yours. I'm learning about anaconda - impressive.
Certain parts are very clean. Other parts like the comps (Components)
are *really* ugly, and way overly complicated IMO -- though it does
allow you to view groups of packages, and if you click on one package in
the group, it will ensure that any needed parents are included as well.
It is absolutely mind boggling what one can do with Python. If I were
starting from scratch today with Bacula, I would probably write it in
Python, with only some small time critical parts in C helper routines.
