Implement the possibility to allow Add-on source from remote "Plain RPM directory"
During installation when configuring an add-on product there is an option called "Local Directory". If you choose that the next window will have a checkbox "Plain RPM Directory" which allows to add a directory that only contains RPMs as an add-on source.
Unfortunately this seems not to be available if you try to configure an add-on product that is not stored locally. Neither FTP, HTTP, SMB, NFS etc... have an option to add a "Plain RPM Directory".
This is really useful for exchanging single or multiple RPMs during development without the need to wait for the next development snapshot to verify changes made to the RPMs install fine.
Support for this should be implemented into autoyast as well. Gives the opportunity to automatically configure a plain rpm update add-on source for easy exchange of RPMs.
Improves development process because developers can test the influence of their changes to RPMs during installation without having to wait for the next development snapshot.
