Please add:

1) a status page for channel downloads, and not just the % completed, but what is actually being downloaded at the time or at least a log file. Maybe a status indicator when a repo is ready for use.

2) the ability to interactively download a channel on demand.

3) a field that tells you where the repo for the channel reside on the server.

4) ability to rebuild a repo

Thanks

We thought about this but discarded it. Download is just one of many steps required to make a channel 'ready to use'. A lot of time is spent in rebuilding the database index, which is hard to track.



2) the ability to interactively download a channel on demand.

You can schedule a refresh of a channel.


3) a field that tells you where the repo for the channel reside on the server.

The repo does not reside on the server, its created on-demand via database queries. Packages are spread all over /var/spacewalk and an individual 'repo view' is created on-demand.


4) ability to rebuild a repo

See refresh of channel above.
