Make installation history accessible from Yast GUI

Feature state

openSUSE 12.1
Done
openSUSE-11.2

Description

As there is now (since openSUSE 11.1) a way to access the history of installed packages and their dependencies, it would be very useful if this history could be accessed from the Yast GUI. In the present implementation, zypper saves the history in a file (/var/log/zypp/history) which is very obscure. The history thus shown from yast should be able to show official-updates and non-official upgrades in different categories.

Usecase

1. Install new software, software not working (or not liked), look-up history start yast, look-up history, uninstall software and installed dependencies.
2. Online update, something goes wrong (upgraded software not working or something), look-up history to see recent updates and revert (all from yast).

this is a nice feature and it's on some TODO list already, but for 11.2 we like to do only the top 5 features on software management, so I reject it for 11.2

Missing this feature, also. Over the years, I just don't know anymore which packages were installed by myself, which were updates, which dependencies came with them, etc.

Would make it so much easier to uninstall unneeded or plainly forgotten packages.

There is some ongoing work [1] on integrating this into the yast-gtk UI and we have had some discussions to that effect and more at http://groups.google.com/group/yast2-gtk . This will be a part of yast-gtk for 11.3.

If someone takes this into yast-qt, that would seal this feature.

Thanks.

Am I wrong or is now this (or something alike) already added in openSUSE 11.3 Milestone 6 (in Yast Control Center>Software Manager)?

Implemented in yast2-qt 2.21.8, let's see if it makes it into 12.1
