1. I want to be able to switch to a classic repository-view like you got in PkgBrowser. That should include filters for installed/non-installed/orphans/updates/groups/foreign -packages system-wide and not just for one repo.
2. I want a details-window like you got in Synpatic or PkgBrowser showing you the full description, dependencies, files and so on (maybe both as a doubleclick-popup and a split-view with tabs)
The pics are just just to explain what I mean. I want this optional and not as a replacement for the nice GUI you already made and I dont want a remake of synaptic/pkgbrowser or porthole.
3. AUR-hits for available updates are not shown via tray-icon
4. I want yaourt-support, more precisely support for building from ABS/AUR and altering the pacman-arguments like you can in "porthole" the portage frontend.
How to do something like "yaourt -Sbb warsow"? I want warsow compiled and the dependencies as well. Maybe I also need to edit the PKGBUILDs and .install files during that installation. Maybe I need the "--noconfirm" flag.
5. I want to recursively remove a package (pacman -Rs) or rather alter the possible arguments before the command is applied.
for options 4 and 5 have a look at this one http://www.abload.de/img/portholeu7gc.png
Again this is just to explain what I mean, not to remake anything. I think those are features that really can be added.
6. I want to be able to switch to a more detailed view for installing packages. ATM I can't read the output at all and the window is closed before I can review what has been done.
7. How about a global database for popularity of packages (I remember Linux-Mint has something like that)? Regarding AUR you could just output the "votes".
8. password is still not saved
9. will add more things eventually^^
I know. Pepole will tell me... why not use PkgBrowser, appset-qt and the console alltogether. Of course, I do, but console sucks to browse repos and PkgBrowser has now installation-functionality. Maintaining your packages would be a lot easier if you just need one program and I think this one comes close to it.
