[edit] Detailed Description

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

[edit] 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.

[edit] Scope

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

[edit] How To Test

[edit] User Experience

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

[edit] Dependencies

PackageKit 0.5.1 nspluginwrapper-1.3.0-5 (in F11 updates)

[edit] Contingency Plan

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

[edit] Documentation

[edit] Release Notes

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