Title: YaST2 screen title needs a machine-name in it

openSUSE-11.2: Rejected by Andreas Jaeger (a_jaeger)
reject date: 2009-08-12 14:47:14
reject reason: Too late for 11.2.
Requester: Important

openSUSE-11.3: Evaluation
Requester: Important
Projectmanager: Desirable

Requested by: Greg Riedesel (gracal)

The nomenclature, "[YaST control panel] @ [machine name]' is very
useful for figuring out which window belongs to which server.
Especially if the managing workstation is also openSUSE.
Formerly Bug 385625

Use Case:
When managing openSUSE servers over X-forwarding via SSH, it is
possible to have multiple YaST screens up at the same time, each
belonging to a different remote server. Having a way to differentiate
between YaST instances in the title-bar will reduce confusion, and help
avoid config mistakes.

The ncurses interface already has this. (The qt one does not?)

+ #3: Thomas Göttlicher (tgoettlicher) (2010-03-10 16:11:29) (reply to
+ #2)
+ yast2-qt shows the hostname in the title bar for remote connection only. I
+ think it doesn't make sense to show @localhost.
