I have to agree that YaST is a good example of what can be achieved. I 
particularly like the different ways of selecting what to view using the combo 
box. It offer you choices such as Package groups, Repositories, Search and 
Installation summary. I guess these are self explanatory. The icon in front of 
each item indicates if it has been installed, is about to be installed, is 
about to be upgraded, should not be modified or should never be installed 
(there are a few other variants too).

I know I've seen a online user guide describing how to use the application but 
now I cannot find it. In any case I guess it's best to download and try
