i fully agree but untill somebody make possible to have an "un-branded
SLES" (like red-hat and centOS) that will happen. on my case if i don't
want to pay lots of money i have to use openSUSE.

i think that instead drop very very useful packages we just have to made
a better work on pattern.. example, as you sed, a desktop user will not
use several yast modules like "yast2-vm" or IMHO either apparmor. and
many other "server related" modules.

i agree with the "do not install it by default but provide it".

any way, ncurses yast is still useful if X for any reason broken.

And here we come back to the question of what is our primary target
audience. You are interested in the sysadmin case, but some contributors
are more interested in desktop users who are not sysadmins.

Until we answer this question, there will be disagreements on topics
like this.

For example, my personal take is that a lot of yast modules aren't
needed for a standard desktop user (which doesn't mean they should be
available for installation, of course). [Note that I'm not pushing for
this change, this is just an example of a similar topic where people
will disagree]
