Your prolific writing in this thread belies this statement, nearly
one lengthy post for each of the past 7 hours.

There is a difference between the technical issue which is more or less
non existing to me. See one of my initial relpies. I'm able to
configure how the YaST software mangement tools behaves on exit.

But there is some issue regarding how users think to communicate with
developers. And from the arguments presented I count this a big and
important issue.

Then it should have been split off the original subject with a relevant subject.

You're using bugzilla and are driving issues forward there.

Is that tool ok, is it brilliant, or is at at the other end of scale of
tools you had or have to use?

Typically on other distros I've been exposed to they have bug trackers that are also enhancement trackers. I much prefer those systems. Often the distinction between enhancement and bug or feature are blurry or non-existent. It's much easier to mark enhancement or not than to shift into an entirely different system, and suffer through incessant discussions about how to/where to/why to not use the bug tracker, and why the feature system is marginally useful.

If you used http://features.openSUSE.org/ I'd like to ask you the same
questions as raised for bugzilla.

I've used it little, for the reasons above and put forth by others.

We need to know how high the pain level is to use the existing tools.

If they're non acceptable or not considered to help we have to evaluate
if and which tools support our project goals better.
