But then sometimes submitting logs is just silly.

I submitted a bug because there's package nagios-plugins-apt built
against openSUSE. This package is used to monitor the status of
apt-get updates on Debian distros. It can not install on openSUSE
through zypper due to a missing dependency of apt. But somehow I am
asked for y2logs!? Is this not enough:

You are right - in this case, y2logs are not needed. Looks like Kun Kan
Zhang is trained on requesting logs for every YaST bug ;-) (and in 99%
of the cases, they are needed)

OTOH you as bugreporter also weren't perfect ;-)
Let me tell you could do better:
- report the bug against the correct component - it is clearly a bug in
the nagios-plugins package, not a YaST bug - therefore choosing
"YaST2" as component doesn't make too much sense. I'd choose one of
Network, Basesystem or Other.
- assign the bug directly to the package maintainer:
# osc maintainer openSUSE:Factory nagios-plugins
bugowner of server:monitoring/nagios-plugins :
schneemann AT

Hint: you can still change the component and reassign the bug ;-)
