Yeah I've discussed this a bit with some people, and I agree. Fedora
*users* might use the packages app to find out the same info that
packagers want to find out.
However, I think that even though users and packagers are coming to
this app for the same purpose, only one of those purposes maps to the
CPE team's mission statement: the packager's. If you are a packager,
you *need* to know what versions are where at a glance, especially when
dealing with something high priority like a CVE.
That's not to say that the end-user story isn't a valuable use case,
but our team is overburdened and we need to drop most of what we do
right now, and we have to be specific about what our purpose is. This
means dropping some valuable use cases.
