I've found the following issue with the Expert installation mode:

The software series selection menu currently holds 19 items, so there
would, logically, be 19 package selection menus to go through when
performing an Expert-mode installation (if you don't de-select any of
the series right away).

However, there are currently roughly about twice as many package
selection menus as there are software series. Apparently, this is
because some of those 19 series are subdivided into smaller portions.
For example, the “modules” series contains the subdirectories “perl”,
“python” and “ruby”. So, it seems that the number of package selection
menus corresponds to the number of directories in Dragora's package tree
rather than to the number of software series. This is quite confusing
and should be handled differently.

The best solution would be to have the number of package selection menus
equal the number of software series, but preserve meaningful subdivision
of series in the package selection menus. The easiest way to do that
would probably be to divide, e.g., the package selection menu for
“modules” into three different sections, somewhat like this:

  -- Perl --

  [*] Perl package 1
  [*] Perl package 2
  [*] Perl package n

  -- Python --

  [*] Python package 1
  [*] Python package 2
  [*] Python package n

  -- Ruby --

  [*] Ruby package 1
  [*] Ruby package 2
  [*] Ruby package n

What do you think?
