So now if I want to install Red Hat programs, I have to use yum via the command line? I see that up2date is restricted to merely updating programs from yum repositories. But why not: 1. Make a yum GUI front-end. 2. Integrate the yum GUI front-end with the "Red Hat Network Alert Notification Tool", allowing the user to both INSTALL AND UPDATE any program from the same integrated GUI front-end. 3. Allow the user to browse and add/remove different 3rd party yum repositories, perhaps based on a master list with which each 3rd party yum repository would be responsible registering.
