Description meliandra 2004-08-30 10:29:03 UTC
[ BUILD # : 200408191352 ]
[ JDK VERSION : J2SE 1.5.0 ]

The packager chooser drop down is not userfriendly if you have a great list of packages.

It would be more userfriendly if the drop down reacts if on typing.

E.g. you type in ext and the drop down shows packages that starts with ext.

I think it is even in the UI spec. see the URL, but will very likely
not go into 4.0
