8 There's one thing that'd help repoman scripting: the ability to work on
9 several dirs at once. Just as I can run 'cvs up konqueror kmail', I want to
10 run 'repoman konqueror kmail' - because running repoman 100 times in a
11 package dir is slower than running it once in a category dir with 100
12 packages.
14 If this request makes sense I'll open a bug if you want me to.
