Hey, let's not get carried away; this is not a OS-level change, it's, in
effect, simply just another UI frontend for yum, not much different from
pirut/pup, yumex, whatever except that it's designed to solve the
problem in a much nicer way (at least some of us think) both from a
technical point and an user experience point of view. There's no reason
to fear change.
From a technical point it doesn't solve the problem in a different
at all. I've been helping Richard with scripts to backend packagekit
with yum and the scripts are extremely simple. To be clear - some of the
user experience items are really just papering over the security
questions and hoping no one notices that right now PackageKit is the
yum -y do_whatever_just_be_quiet_about_it.
