[openFATE 323096] Load slideshow from RPM from the product
Feature changed by: Jiri Srain (jsrain)
Feature #323096, revision 6
Title: Load slideshow from RPM from the product

Requested by: Thorsten Kukuk (kukuk)
Partner organization:

With converting DVD installation images from SUSETags to repomd, we
need a new location for the slide show.
The idea is, to agree on a naming schema, put the slide show in an RPM
on the media in the product repo and let the installer search for it
there and load it into the inst-sys.

I set this to mandatory as we need the slideshow still.
How this is implemented I let you decide.

Loading from RPM is a way which allows use to get the slideshow from
rpm-md metadata without adding any SUSE-sepcific stuff.

I suggest using `extend`, the same approach as we use for password-
check or DUD. We even already have an API for that in Installer. RPM
can be even part of the install media repository. ${SHORT_PRODUCT}-
slideshow would probably make it.

+ This will not work if the slideshow is only abvailable as a package in
+ the repository - this would require putting it to the installer and
+ build it as part of installation images and similar (meta-)packages.
+ (currently, we duplicate such packages on the media)
+ In principle it would work as well, though. We just need to adjust the
+ media layout accordingly then.
