If there will be a tool similar to rpmdrake to install 
libs/programs/games/ I'd like to suggest "New" features when it comes to 
finding certain software if you don't know where to look.

The categories on the left shows a lot of info, but I really miss 
subcategories that makes it even easier to find it.

It'll be something similar to THIS:

P2P-programs -> Sharing -> Linuxdcpp

Is it going to be possible to filter out if you don't want to SEE the 
libs when you search for programs & games?

Just to hide them.

One last thing.

When adding sources either via MCC (or the similar tool in Mageia) or 
from the installation of Mageia it would be great if you could choose IF 
you want to add Debug, Testing, Backports-medias instead of getting them 
automatically when you click on Add complete sources in 
drakrpm-edit-media (or similar tool in Mageia). Not all users intend to 
use Debug-packages all the time. I'd like the possibility to add 
Debug-medias afterwards if I haven't done that before. There's no such 
option so you have to remove all current sources to add them. I DO know 
that you can use Terminal/Console/Shell to add debug-medias as well, but 
I'm talking graphically now.

Well well.
Take care & have a lovely day.
