Thanks, that's the info I needed.

On the subject of wishful thinking, here's my wish that more apps will try to apply sane, consistent rules to their UI with respect to metadata - i.e. provide uniform operations to access/perform-other-operations-on metadata.

The metadata behind the dnf "mark install" and "mark remove" commands seems to be a bit peculiar: reading man pages, I can find no way to retrieve it - only to set/clear it or act on it. How can I actually query the associated boolean value for any/all packages?

Thanks, Mark
