Edith, what can be done for openSUSE 10.3?

Too late for 10.3.

This one is also piececake. Using a capability iterator for the current canddate over suggests, get selectables and mark them for install, add this to the all in this list menu.

(I hope you're talking about the "suggestions" list the solver already returns)

Ok, it was implemented in the package groups section. It is not factible to do it inthe context menu because this mean looking for suggest which is error prone.

The solver has a global list of recommended and suggested packages. Which depends on the last solver run.
