Re: [p2-dev] GSOC Project - Power-user p2 views

I went through few Linux package managers. I think synaptic package manager is a good example for our task. But If we implement something similar to that, it will be more closer to the p2 Update UI rather than to admin UI.

I read some articles on new eclipse e4 technology. I found it is very cool when it comes to UI designs. But I am not sure whether it is a good idea to implement the UI with new e4 technology.

Most of these "power users" come from Linux. A good place to start is the various package managers/installers available for Linux distributions.
Some that have been mentioned in the past include Synaptic Package Manager, Ubuntu Installer, etc.

The admin UI is very "p2-centric" - it directly shows the underlying p2 model so in this way it's not really appropriate. But the fact that the pieces are implemented as views vs. modal, task-based workflows is probably something to consider.

You might also want to check the p2 bugs prefixed with [ui] for discussions in this area.

I am working on the above mentioned project. But I am not clear about the expectation of the power users. I know that it is somewhat between P2 Admin UI and standard user update UI. I am still not sure about the level of the functionality that they like to have in the Update UI. Please help me to get a good understanding of the expectations of the power users.
