Description:
After successful installation, when finishing session, user should be
asked to migrate his settings to the installed system.

Discussion:

Retaining network settings on installation would possibly mimic the
behavior of a net-install disc.  That is one setting worth
transferring.

#2: Michael Löffler (michl19) (2009-08-11 15:35:36)
Sounds to me like a simplification for the user.

+ Yes, I wonder how it could be implemented. The point is that at any
+ point of time the live installer is running, user can do whatever and
+ in the end the copied data is inconsistent. Obviously, the best
+ solution would be to grab the /home/username directory at the logout
+ time, however, then the target system is not mounted any more (this can
+ be changed). I'm not sure whether it would work with user name change
+ (linux renamed to real user).
