fedora software center?

Is there a plan to add a "software center" program to the fedora distribution? Like the ubuntu software center?
I've created a project called "kysoft" in sourceforge, it's a way to install big software using rpm group, and I would like to make it works like a app store.
My point is: is there already something that like my kysoft project? If not, can I get some help in developing this kysoft software?

Re: fedora software center?

I think there are such plans. There was a discussion in the Fedora devel mailing list some time ago.
Richard Hughes would be the man to ask: http://fedoraproject.org/wiki/RichardHughes

Re: fedora software center?

Since yum is the core package manager for Fedora (open a terminal and type "man yum" for details), you may find that yumex is the gui equivalent of synaptic. Open a terminal, sign in as root (su or su -) and type "yum install yumex".

Well, only a gui of yum may not satisfy us, you know. We want a "App store"-like tool in the desktop, since packages and packaging are not that interesting to the end user.

Re: fedora software center?

if you want an app store like software center, i suggest you to use Ubuntu or Debian . or get used to PackageKit or use yumex as suggested

Re: fedora software center?

I think what he means is not just another gui-frontend for yum, but a place for companies to put software up for sale. Like games and such, but also for other programs like professional photo-editing, or whatever. Some people say this is one of the factors that could help Linux get bigger on the desktop side of things (personally I don't care since I already use it, and I'm happy doing things my own way).
It could work as an extra repository and you could continue teasing your windows using friends for having to trawl the web for installations and updates, or for having each and every program installed calling home, checking for updates, while you just run your 'yum update' every once in a while and get everything served.
I don't think that's such a bad idea.

No we don't. We're happy with the way the Fedora repos work.

Haven't had a chance to try it yet.
