Sorry to be negative, but I installed and tried yumex,
and found it more or less useless.
Or maybe I lack the necessary intelligence to use it.
When I click on Update I'm prompted to fill in something for "Filter",
whatever that means.
When I click "Select all" at the bottom of the page
and then click the second "Update" item (why two?)
I'm told "No packages selected".
I think that quite a lot of work needs to be done on this
before it is accepted as a standard part of Fedora.
