*shrug* I'm not sure users want to constantly get more and more
to their install, vs just the existing packages updated. Typically
RHL/Fedora releases wouldn't change comps for the duration of the release,
but with Extras and new packages being added all the time, comps can get
updated. Blindly adding new packages to a user's install isn't the way,
perhaps if the user launches pirut it can notice that new packages have been
added to the pool and do a interesting popup or a window that says "new
packages added to the pool:
foo in group Bar
baz in group Zing
and let the USER decide if they want to add those packages or not.
So, to do this you'd need to keep track of the *previous* state of the
comps and do (essentially) a diff. The metadata at the moment isn't
set to store this information.
Napkin-ing this, you'd compare it, see the new packages, and then
New software available in the 'Games' group:
GnomePoker - Play poker against your friends! Lose all your money!
HackSlashKillMaim - Role play as your favorite serial killer
[ Don't install ] [ Tell me more ] [ Ask me later ] [ Install new packages ]
or something along those lines.
