Requested by: Jakub Rusinek (liviopl)

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

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

#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).

+ On Mandriva, if I remember well, username change doesn't change
+ anything and the files are copied.
