Hi, gm10. Do you see what I see...?
Besides that, there's one other thing that bothers me: kernel (and not only) update size. What do I mean by that? Let me explain.
Usually when a kernel update is present I see its size like 2kB or so. But when I actually start the update there is a popup saying that it depends on this and that package, and if I allow them there will be a few dozen megabytes to download instead of those 2kB.
Now, my current 3G subscription appears to be unlimited in size so I can download as much as I want without a drop in speed or extra charge. But until recently I used a subscription (which is still valid and usable as a fallback) that only allowed 5GB per month at full speed, beyond which download speed dropped to ~15kB/s. I can only imagine there may be others with such limited subscription so it may be in their interest to see from the very beginning the real size of the download packages in order to avoid further interruptions, disabling of items and so on if they want to preserve their download quota.
Do you think it can be done, and not only for kernel packages but for all packages that have "hidden" dependencies?
Hint: wasted window space and badly formatted text in the changelog.
