How would it be if YaST could allow the users to enable some
repositories during installation process?

That could probably be a cool feature even to use with OBS repositories.
In other words, could we offer during install that the users could
enable official VLC depot or packman depot ? Would we still be under the
patents hammer (imagining we're placing a disclaimer?)?
FWIW, what we want to do in GNOME is to configure the needed
repositories (for codecs, eg) when they are needed. That is, when you
need a codec but don't have it. It feels better from a UI point of view,
imho, but the legal team is reviewing if that makes sense.


Please check Factory (KDE SC 4.5)

I found smplayer in Extra:
VLC is included in Unstable:Playground:

I imagine it will eventually be added to Extra in the future. Yes?
