    Hm? Wasn’t it already?
    The only stop-show issue I encountered with Magea was increditably (think of a slug) slow package parse.
    One has to wait literally 1 minute to become a package list, and about 4 minutes to find something within it.
    Among the pure binary managers, apt is by far the fastest on topic and opensuse rpm/yast/zypper version is relatively acceptable (although no way fast as apt).

    It has been since the beginning.

    Yea, it's pretty silly, but that only affects the GUI. Using urpmi is much faster, and also allows for a very powerful way to search through packages.
