I would certainly like to have a look at it. And Wiki sounds always good.

Would that be equivalent to a senior solutions engineer rubber title or
below? :)

I also certainly wouldn't say no if you are asking me to review concepts,
submit patches to scripts and so on. I certainly have no vacancies left to take
over any sort of maintainership, unfortunately. And I'm not a
cryptographer either, so hardcore crypto review is outside my
capabilities, as are in-depth kernel implementation issues.

I neither may not be the best man to write YasT plugins and the like, as
it would mean learning a lot of stuff concerning the python (?) backend to
YasT. Furthermore, some of SUSE's administrative interfaces seem to change
from time to time, to put it mildly:)

Best regards
