Title: yast should not override ip_forward setting
openSUSE Distribution: New
Requested by: Bernhard Wiedemann (bmwiedemann)
Partner organization: openSUSE.org
someone thought, this bugfix qualifies as feature:
echo net.ipv4.ip_forward = 1 > /etc/sysctl.d/50-ip-forward.conf
sysctl --system 2>/dev/null |grep "ip_forward = "
net.ipv4.ip_forward = 1
as a system administrator I want to override ip_forward setting in an
easily scripted manner by writing my preferred values to /etc/sysctl.
Business case (Partner benefit):
: manual configuration is deprecated and yast overriding
admin's settings should be a thing of the past.

That's odd that it was filed away as a 'feature', though it seems that
this is for SLE as I can't access the bug report. If it is for SLE,
could you add a feature request against SLE while logged in? I *think*
you can do that but not sure.

+ To me this looks clearly like a bug, yast should never override the
+ user' written settings (I thought we got this fixed ages ago).
