[opensuse-ruby] YaST in Ruby
Hi,

as some may know, since January few SUSE developers in Prague are working on automatically translating YaST codebase from YCP (an old proprietary language) into Ruby. The main goals are to give the platform a technology boost, so that we can evolve it easier in the future, and lower the effort spent on maintenance in the long term.

The project recently reached an important milestone -- we are able to install a 12.3-based system using an installer composed only of translated YaST modules:

http://lists.opensuse.org/yast-devel/2013-05/msg00026.html

We plan to integrate the work into Factory/openSUSE 13.1 soon (the details are still being fleshed out). This will make YaST an important part of the Ruby ecosystem as provided by openSUSE. I thought it would be good to make all openSUSE/SUSE Ruby developers aware of that, as their work will have much bigger impact now.

If you are interested in details of the translation project, the main entry point is the YCP Killer project repository on GitHub:

If you have any questions or you would like to help with testing/development, feel free to contact us.
