YaST Workshop in Nuremberg, June 30 through July 4

June 25th, 2008 by

Now that openSUSE 11.0 is out the door, the YaST team is looking to get together and improve YaST even more.

Next week the YaST team will be meeting in Nuremberg, Monday through Friday, to hack on YaST and work on some of the projects on the YaST Research page.

The improvements in YaST for 11.0 have been amazing, but there’s always room for improvement and innovation. Some of the ideas on the table now include:

  • Porting YaST to other distros.
  • Integration with PolicyKit.
  • A Web interface for YaST.
  • Make YaST more IPv6 compatible.
  • Improve YaST documentation.

And there’s a lot more where that came from. If you’d like to get involved with the Hackshop, but don’t happen to be in Nuremberg, there’s a few ways you can participate. If you’re interested in taking part in the workshop remotely, please join in on #yast on Freenode and follow the discussion on yast-devel. We have limited space at the meeting facilities, but may be able to accommodate a few interested developers who would like to help improve YaST.

We’ll have a full report after the Hackfest, and would welcome suggestions and discussion on the yast-devel mailing list.
