Problem is that requirements for swap for traditional swap usage
and for hibernation are quite different. For normal swap, 2G
(the current upper limit) is plenty and any real-world system
really using more than 2G swap would be more or less unusable.
True.

For hibernation the swap size should indeed be larger.
But this is mostly useful for laptops while I would assume
most autoyast installations are on other systems.
Also true.

But this seems to be more a problem of the Yast Storage module than AutoYast,
right?
So does the storage module actually propose swap size >=RAM on laptops when the
user asks for a partitioning proposal?

I did not check this... but if not, then the automatic partitioning proposal
would make hibernation impossible for the "not-so-tech-savvy" user.

Just out of curiosity: Is it currently possible to use a "hibernation file"
like Windows, located on some filesystem? This way, one would get around the
requirement of having such a large swap partition and 2GB would be enough.
