Module ITERATOR
Separate them into individual zypp header files.
Member makeDeltaCandidates
templated ctor

Module Poor man's save/restore state.
There may be better save/restore state strategies.
Module Repository content manipulating methods.
maybe a separate Repository/Solvable content manip interface provided by the pool.
Module RESFILTERS
migrate to namespace filter and enhance to support Solvables as well.
Member SET_OPTION (opt, val)
deprecate SET_OPTION and use the typed versions below.
Module Trimming whitepace.
optimize l/r trim.
Module Trimming whitepace.
optimize l/r trim.
Module Trimming whitepace.
optimize l/r trim.
Member zypp::Arch::CompatEntry::CompatBits
Migrate to some infinite BitField
Class zypp::base::Fd
It's dumb. Openflags and more related functions (read/write..) could be added.
Class zypp::base::ReferenceCounted
Make counter thread safe.
Namespace zypp::bit
Use boost::mpl library to assert constraints at compiletime! There various like (TInt is an integral type) (begin+size < maxbits) or ( field dependent constants must be within the range defined by size ).
Class zypp::C_Str
Check whether to replace by boost::string_ref
Class zypp::DefaultIntegral< Tp, TInitial >

maybe specialize for bool, add logical and bit operators

let TInitial default to 0 then remove base/Counter.h

Member zypp::Dep::Dep (const std::string &strval_r)
refine exceptions and check throw.
Class zypp::DtorReset
Check if using call_traits enables 'DtorReset(std::string,"value")', as this currently would require assignment of 'char[]'.
Class zypp::Exception
That's a draft to have a common way of throwing exceptions. Most probabely we'll finally use blocxx exceptions. Here, but not in the remaining code of zypp. If we can we should try to wrap the blocxx macros and typedef the classes in here.
Member zypp::Fetcher::enqueueDigested (const OnMediaLocation &resource, const FileChecker &checker=FileChecker(), const Pathname &deltafile=Pathname())
FIXME implement checker == operator to avoid this.
Namespace zypp::filesystem

move zypp::filesystem stuff into separate header

Add tmpfile and tmpdir handling.

think about using Exceptions in zypp::filesystem

provide a readdir iterator; at least provide an interface using an insert_iterator to be independent from std::container.

Member zypp::filesystem::erase (const Pathname &path)
check cooperation with zypp::TmpFile and zypp::TmpDir
Member zypp::filesystem::FileType
Think about an Enumeration Class
Class zypp::filesystem::Pathname
Add support for handling extensions incl. stripping extensions from basename (basename("/path/foo.baa", ".baa") ==> "foo")
Member zypp::filesystem::readdir (std::list< std::string > &retlist, const Pathname &path, bool dots=true)
provide some readdirIterator.
Member zypp::filesystem::readdir (std::list< Pathname > &retlist, const Pathname &path, bool dots=true)
provide some readdirIterator.
Namespace zypp::functor::functor_detail
drop it an use boost::ref
Namespace zypp::HACK
Eliminate this!
Class zypp::HistoryLog
The implementation as pseudo signleton is questionable. Use shared_ptr instead of handcrafted ref/unref. Manage multiple logs at different locations.
Class zypp::IdStringType< Derived >

allow redefinition of order vis _doCompare not only for char* but on any level

Member zypp::make (const sat::Solvable &solvable_r)
make<> was a poor choice (AFAIR because gcc had some trouble with asKind<>(sat::Solvable)). Remove it in favour of asKind<>(sat::Solvable)
Class zypp::media::CredentialManager

better method names

delete(AuthData) method

Member zypp::media::CredentialManager::addCred (const AuthData &cred)

Currently no callback is called, credentials are automatically saved to user's credentials.cat if no 'credentials' parameter has been specified

ask user where to store these creds. saving to user creds for now

Member zypp::media::CredentialManager::getCred (const Url &url)
return a copy instead?
Member zypp::media::CredentialManager::saveInFile (const AuthData &, const Pathname &credFile)
figure out the reason(?), call back to user
Class zypp::media::CredManagerOptions
configurable cred file locations
Member zypp::media::MediaCIFS::authenticate (AuthData &authdata, bool firstTry) const

need a way to pass different CredManagerOptions here

add comma to the message for the next release

find a way to save the url with changed username back to repoinfo or dont store urls with username (and either forbid more repos with the same url and different user, or return a set of credentials from CM and try them one by one)

Member zypp::media::MediaCurl::authenticate (const std::string &availAuthTypes, bool firstTry) const

need a way to pass different CredManagerOptions here

find a way to save the url with changed username back to repoinfo or dont store urls with username (and either forbid more repos with the same url and different user, or return a set of credentials from CM and try them one by one)

Class zypp::media::MediaPriority
Maybe introduce a static tribool, to allow overwriting zypp.conf(download.media_preference) default.
Member zypp::MediaSetAccess::provideDir (const Pathname &dir, bool recursive, unsigned media_nr=1, ProvideFileOptions options=PROVIDE_DEFAULT)
throw SkipRequestException if a problem occured and user has chosen to skip the current operation. The calling code should continue with the next one, if possible.
Member zypp::misc::defaultLoadSystem (const Pathname &sysRoot_r="/", LoadSystemFlags flags_r=LoadSystemFlags())
properly handle service refreshs
Class zypp::OnMediaLocation
Implement cheap copy via COW.
Class zypp::packagedelta::DeltaRpm
cheap copy! (switch to RWCOW)
Member zypp::parser::yum::RepomdFileReader::Impl::consumeNode (Reader &reader_r)
xpath: /repomd/open-checksum (?)
Member zypp::PoolItem::PoolItemSaver
get rid of it.
Class zypp::PoolItemBest
Support arbitrary Predicates.
Member zypp::PoolQuery::addAttribute (const sat::SolvAttr &attr, const std::string &value="")
check the above
Member zypp::Product::UrlList::ListType
Change to directly iterate the .solv
Member zypp::Rel::Rel (const std::string &strval_r)
refine exceptions and check throw.
Member zypp::repo::RepoMediaAccess::Impl::mediaAccessForUrl (const Url &url, RepoInfo repo)
This mixture of media and repos specific data is fragile.
Member zypp::repo::RepoMediaAccess::provideFile (RepoInfo repo_r, const OnMediaLocation &loc_r, const ProvideFilePolicy &policy_r)
Investigate why this needs a non-const Repository as arg.
Member zypp::repo::susetags::Downloader::download (MediaSetAccess &media, const Pathname &dest_dir, const ProgressData::ReceiverFnc &progress=ProgressData::ReceiverFnc())
: Downloading/sigcheck of master index shoudl be common in base class
Member zypp::RepoManager::Impl::modifyService (const std::string &oldAlias, const ServiceInfo &newService)
refresh the service automatically if url is changed?
Member zypp::RepoManager::Impl::refreshService (const std::string &alias, const RefreshServiceOptions &options_r)
add callbacks for apps (start, end, repo removed, repo added, repo changed)?
Class zypp::ResObject
Merge with Resolvable
Class zypp::Resolvable

Merge with ResObject

Get rid of refcout/smart_prt bloat, as this type is actually IdBased (i.e. sizeof(unsigned))

Class zypp::ResPoolProxy
integrate it into ResPool
Class zypp::ResPoolProxy::Impl
Seedup as it is still using old index
Class zypp::sat::ArrayAttr< TResult, TAttr >
Maybe add some way to unify the result.
Member zypp::sat::detail::PoolImpl::getRepo (RepoIdType id_r) const
a quick check whether the repo was meanwhile deleted.
Member zypp::sat::detail::PoolImpl::prepare () const
actually requires a watcher.

template value_type to work with IString and other Id based types
Class zypp::sat::WhatObsoletes
Publish obsoleteUsesProvides config option.
Member zypp::str::toLower (const std::string &s)
improve
Member zypp::str::toUpper (const std::string &s)
improve

: wrap more functions.
Class zypp::target::hal::HalDrive
: wrap more functions.
Class zypp::target::hal::HalVolume
: wrap more functions.
Class zypp::target::RpmPostTransCollector
Maybe embedd this into the TransactionSteps.

Unify status and pickStatus.
Class zypp::xml::ParseDef::Impl
Check using share_ptr_from_this for parent in addNode.
Class zypp::xml::Validate
Implement RelaxNG and W3C XSD
Class zypp::ZConfig::Impl
Enrich section and entry definition by some comment (including the default setting and provide some method to write this into a sample zypp.conf.
Class zypp::ZYpp
define Exceptions ZYpp API main interface
Member zypp::zypp_detail::ZYppImpl::commit (const ZYppCommitPolicy &policy_r)
Remove workflow from target, lot's of it could be done here, and target used for transact.
