PackageKit service packs and catalogs

Does anyone actually use the PackageKit service pack or catalog functionality? If there are no users I’m intending to rip out the unused and unloved features from GNOME 3.12. Please say now, or forever hold your peace. Thanks.

  1. Hi Richard,
    Never use the catalogs.., but the service packs was helpful for updating and installing software on a computer without internet. Very few times use it, but when needed it, was useful.
