Using CIM from YaST Modules
There is a YaST prototype of the NFS server configuration module which is using yast2-cim package to read the configuration via the CIM/XML protocol and CIM model. The concept is functional, but the overall feeling from the implementation is that it is very complicated.
Relevance to YaST/openSUSE
Missing: Describe the project relevance to YaST. Which problem does it solve? How will it bring YaST forward ? How does it help openSUSE (resp. Novell)?
Missing: Describe the goal of the project, whats the expected outcome? Both long-term and short-term (for the hackweek).
Remember that the project should be doable and have a useful outcome within a week.
Missing: Describe what is *NOT* part of the project. Use cases and scenarios that remain excluded.
Typical use case
Missing: Try to describe how the project affects an end user. How would she use the result?
A specific story is *required*.
