How this bug can come out of its dead-end? Any suggestions?!

The device can be automatically mounted. It can be checked by its
label that is the original label released with the distro.
I think that should exists a relation between packages and the
repositories on a cached manner. If the repository is on a umounted
device (USB, CD/DVD-ROM) and is not possible to find it on a online
repository or does not exist a active Internet connection, should be
prompted to the user to put / plug the device and a additional thread
is on background checking if the device is mounted by label. A timeout
should be used on check thread to does not put the PackageKit to sleep
forever waiting the path to be mounted.
Should exists a functionality to collect data from the repositories on
media, giving the user the chance to put each DVD/CD on a scanning
process that is stored on the yum / PackageKit database.
Should exists a configuration option to try to search first on offline
repositories giving the user the chance to try use the media before
try to download packages from Internet.
I think that with this the PackageKit is not the responsible to mount the media.

"I received the fundamentals of my education in school, but that was
not enough. My real education, the superstructure, the details, the
true architecture, I got out of the public library. For an
impoverished child whose family could not afford to buy books, the
library was the open door to wonder and achievement, and I can never
be sufficiently grateful that I had the wit to charge through that
door and make the most of it." (from I. Asimov, 1994)
