prevent newbies from adding wrong repos

Feature state

openSUSE Distribution
Done

Description

When thinking of a way how to prevent new users from adding dangerous repos (wrong version or factory) it came to my mind that it would be quite easy to do this.
When adding the repo it should be easy to search alias, name and url for words which do not correspond with the version currently in use.
For example for openSUSE 12.2 these expressions could be 11.4, 12.1, factory and so on.
To allow advanced users to use these repos one could add an option where this flag can be changed.
For example a parameter called allow_blacklist. Whether the value of this parameter ist set to 0 or 1 one is allowed to add these repos or not.
