Hi, friends!
Let me introduce a project for browsing RPM packages for Fedora (http://pkgs.org/) from third-party repositories.

The project provides next features:
* Large, daily updated database with RPM and DEB packages for well-known repositories of the Fedora, CentOS, RHEL, Debian, Ubuntu and OpenSuse distributions.
* Packages browser by distribution, repository, packages group with the filtering support.
* Detailed packages information (name, version, description, architecture, files, requires, etc.).
* Detailed packages statistics by project, distribution, repository and packages group.
* HTTP/FTP/RSYNC mirrors lists for the packages downloading.
* Packages search by name, summary, description, requires, provides, files and directories.
* URL shortcuts for the direct packages search.
* Effective site navigation.
* XHTML/CSS markup.

This seems way more convenient than just using the package manager...

Oh wait, no it doesn't.

Oh wait, no it doesn't.
Why? .

Why? .

Well, I just type
yum install packagename and it's all done automagically.
You want us to open a browser, go to your page, click on several links, (waiting for each), download a package and then install it?
That wouldn't make sense.
