There is a lot of discussions what software should be included in openSUSE,
and what to offer as default. Many people, many opinions.

I guess that long time ago offered predefined configurations can be solution.

Every user can Export list of packages installed on his system. So, this can
be one area where openSUSE users can help themselves and development team.

Instead of endless complains in all possible directions, export you favorite
selection and offer it as a sample, and, just as with screen savers, number
of downloads will be the judge.

This will remove a lot of guesswork, what people like and, after some time,
there will be always some configuration that is close enough to choose from.

I'm asking this to hear opinions how to do that.
Where to upload files exported from YaST?
How to check validity of files?
Collect opinions, beside download numbers?
How to make users aware of that?

Regards, Rajko
