- AutoYaST

Currently not part of the openSUSE manuals, but documentation exists
for SLE and could be added. So far this hasn't been asked for.

System administration

Everything is covered except Virtualization and Storage. Both topics
are covered in SLES, so documentation is available in principle. So
far, Product Management hasn't seen a need to include them with
openSUSE.

General rule of thumb: If documentation exists, push it out for all
products including openSUSE.

Advantages:
- there will _always_ be some people that find exactly this part of the
manual useful. Why make it harder for them by not publishing it?
- more people will use the affected tools (AutoYaST, virtualization ...)
(From what I've heard from AutoYaST, it's a good tool, but probably
not really understandable without documentation.)
- errors in the manual are discovered earlier because of the broader
audience

Disadvantages:
- the PDF will be 100k bigger ;-))
