Owner

Current status

  • Targeted release: Fedora12
  • Last updated: 2009-07-16
  • Percentage of completion: 90%

Detailed Description

The PackageKit-browser-plugin package installs a browser plugin that can be used to install specified software.

Benefit to Fedora

This feature will add the facility to install packages from websites, in a secure way, rather than telling users to run various yum commands as the root user or describing how to use the PackageKit tools.

Scope

This is a very small change in comps, so that the PackageKit-browser-plugin package gets included in the default package set.

How To Test

User Experience

Users can install applications directly from web pages, in a secure and cross-distro way.

Dependencies

PackageKit 0.5.1 (requires new release to be put into rawhide, expected 2008-08-03) nspluginwrapper-1.3.0-5 (in F11 updates)

Contingency Plan

Drop PackageKit-browser-plugin from comps, and revert back to not shipping the browser plugin.

Documentation

Release Notes

  • PackageKit now installs a browser plugin handler so that web pages can install software in a secure environment.
