As always, a pactest and a patch would make it much easier for us to
But about this syncpkg stuff, I just noticed recently that the universal transaction
idea you're mentioning in the reply :
is the first entry in aaron TODO list :
* transaction object should contain two package list (install and remove)
instead of a single list of syncpkgs - this should allow us to get rid of that
type. This also requires seperate functionality to return a list of
"replaces" packages to the front end, so the frontend can handle the QUESTION()
stuff in that case
But maybe you already read that before :)
Anyway, I already liked this idea, and seeing it there made me more confident :)
