Description:
Hello! Removed from https://bugzilla.suse.com/show_bug.cgi?id=953644
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 - https://bugzilla.suse.com/attachment.cgi?id=654649).
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.

+ Business case (Partner benefit):
+ openSUSE.org: User/admin will have the unified module of all btrfs-
+ settings, which are nowadays included in couple of dedicated conf-
+ files.
