Re: [opensuse-factory] Hiding grub prompt when previous boot is successful and when only one OS is installed

Why? If you have just one operating system installed, you can just hibernate
your machine anyway and don't have to reboot the machine at all.

Fedora has 4
patches for this purpose [1,2,3,4], the only thing we would need to add to
this
would be YaST handling of setting variable automatically for graphical target.

FWIW, Fedora also has almost 300 patches on top of GRUB 2.02:

I think that's just way too much. They will have a lot of fun with the
upcoming version 2.04 when they have to rebase everything.

I know that snapper is an useful tool for openSUSE, and GRUB is very much
required for this to work, but snapper is almost always used when user isn't
able to boot into the system.

But what about just switching to systemd-boot then?
