Hello! Removed from

I'd like to offer the schema for, possibly, yast-btrfs-maintainance module,
which combines btrfs settings by parsing matched conf-files and snapper window.
Schema (first variation) and its summary are in yast-btrfs-maintanance.txt
(attached in 953644 as dedicated file to avoid alignment fails).

Preamble: I've not a pleasant experience of using btrfs (hdd was overloaded by
snapshots and than I got kernel panic). Fortunately, it happend on vbox. I had
no info how to define dedicated volume for snapshot storaging, how to schedule
the period of taking snapshots (or even how to turn it on/off), how to define
behavior when zypper updates\installs\uninstalls packages and so on.

So, I made up the conception (hope, useful) of general btrfs-maintaining YaST
module, which parses the matching btrfs' configs and incorporates maintaining
of snapper database. And existed yast2-snapper module can be replaced\upgraded
with this general module.
