- Adding repositories might not be required, but some kind of people don't know how to install Compiz Fusion/etc. Also, RPM Fusion (livna+freshrpm+dribble) will be the most popular non-free repo. When system is installed, first thing they will probably do is installing codecs. Then someone creates file, which helps install RPM Fusion repository and ie. gstreamer-plugins-ugly. That's it. Making installation easier. Also, when someone creates his RPM (not repo), there will be no need to download it, find and click. - JakubRusinek

- knurd , 20080210: repo mixing problems are a big problem in Fedora-land already. Will this stuff make the situation even more problematic? Just imagine what happens when people start to 1click packages from fresh...., atr... and liv... Even worse, what happens when two or three opensuse buildsys repos come into the mix that might replace packages from the other repos of Fedora? And where to people get updates from for packages they 1click installed?
- This feature would be great for new Fedora users and especially for new users to linux in general. If this goes through please look at Linux Mint and their work flow because user experience on Linux Mint is far superior to OpenSuse.
