Re: [opensuse-factory] The (near) future of AutoYaST
Hi Vojtěch,

please be aware that as to Tim Hardecks mail from 2020-03-06 Machinery
is no longer under active development while still working fine.

From: Tim Hardeck <thardeck@xxxxxxx>

Hi everyone,

while Machinery ( is still working
fine, the active development has stopped. We changed the focus in our
team long ago and do not have the resources to maintain it any longer.

Therefore I am asking if anyone is interested in maintaining the
Machinery package in the future, or even willing to take over the >

If not I will remove it from openSUSE Tumbleweed and future openSUSE
Leap versions.

Kind Regards,

it's probably out of purpose of AutoYaST, but I wonder if it
could be usable as kind of backup and restore of configuration.
E.g. if there could be some automated way to create profile
describing actual configuration (what is installed and how
everything is set up). Something like that.

Isn't that one of the main use cases of Machinery?

I wasn't aware of this, thank You. And after reading its homepage such use
isn't obvious for me... Then I also wonder about difference/overlap among
these two tools.
