Re: [mpc-dev] [cross-project-issues-dev] MPC Indigo Catalog

Can I suggest sending comments directly to Nathan.   We don't need more traffic on this list.

Cool. I gave it a try, so ...

... mh, when I click that icon I get a selection of 10 features.
Where's the rest?

 The list concludes with:
	"10 matches. Browse for more solutios"

When I click this link the browser will show lot's of

%description [,]
Linux Tools
%feature.label 3.2.0.v201105172306

Obviously, all the broken entries range at the top of the list.

Next: clicking on an item brings a regular MP page, but if the project
already had a page this is actually redundant and normally with less
information than the existing page.


Back to the MPC:  only when selecting "Indigo" in the drop down at the top
I get s.t. in the  order I'd expected.

Now I wonder, what's the order those features are presented in?
I find it difficult to find anything in this list.
Maybe those are already  too many features to browse in a sequential
list without further structuring?

Given we can already browse all these features in a categorized view
using "Install new software..." what's the aim in presenting the same
set of features in the MPC?


So, after an initial "wow that's cool" I'm not quite convinced this
catalog is worth the effort. But it could well be that I just didn't
understand the use case for this.
