susetags2solv - convert the susetags repository format into a solv file

The susetags format is most as repository format on most products created by SUSE. The susetags2solv reads data from standard input, converts the format into a solv file, and writes it to standard output.


Also parse the specified content file containing meta information about the repository.


Data query mode: instead of writing a solv file, select the WHAT element in the input data and write it to standard output. An example for WHAT is defaultvendor to get a default vendor for the repository.


Merge the content of the specified solv file into the output.


Autoexpand SUSE pattern and product provides into packages.
