Don't disguise things, you don't help the bottom line again here. It's
not about providing an easy access or not, it's about dedicating time
to an improvement that seems remote to some, and not so remote to
others. There are other things to focus on as well.

Once more, as misc suggested again yesterday, and as it has been
replied from the beginning, you are free and welcome to join the
sysadmin team and/or web team and/or to work to provide a patch for
this feature, against our infrastructure.

Mageia is a community thing, and it's not enough to say "it should be
that way" to have it done. You want it, you do it, you submit it to
review. Working prototypes have more value than ideas.
