Don't know about the new site, but the old site used to. It's just a matter of running a script to build info for the RPMs. No different than any RPM repository. In fact, there is a submission page and related database. Of course, this has nothing to do with the package front-ends like APT, YUM, etc... They have their own mechanisms, as well as front-ends like Synaptic and YUMGUI that offer the same. -- Bryan J.

Subj: Re: [JaxLUG] FW: Fedora Extras available for download Just a quick question, do they have a short description list for what the program is for/what it does? A web listing preferably, I know it can be searched via yum, but I'm thinking of something browsable. --Donald On Wed, 02 Feb 2005 10:22:42 -0800 (PST), Bryan J.
