Support transaction triggers for rpms

Feature state

openSUSE-11.2
Rejected Information
openSUSE-11.3
Evaluation By Productmanager

Description

It's important to be able to run once after all packages have been installed a command (instead of running the command after each of x packages getting installed, which would make the process much slower). That's basically a post-transaction trigger.

For background, see https://bugzilla.novell.com/show_bug.cgi?id=365649 and especially comment #14 from Stanislav.
(note that this is work that should be done in upstream rpm, not as patches)

This is an important feature for dist upgrade IMO. If we want to support "zypper dup", we need to handle this.

I have no "PM" position on this, although technically it may make sense (some of the items, like the Gtk cache, can probably be helped by using less-broken caching on the Gnome front - I keep hearing complaints about it).

I will support Engineering's priority. Setting "important" for now.

If this is to be done, the "upstream" comment in the description regarding RPM is absolutely mandatory.

We now do support 'zypper dup' but this is still missing. At the very least we should make users aware of the workaround with manually setting YAST_IS_RUNNING and running suseconfig, until this is done.
