ITO time proposal
YaST Web UI, Approach: Wt

Why:
- there is already a prototype from Stano
- nobody has come wth a better approach?
- It is C++
- It is similar to Qt
- It offers AJAX
- widget-centric (avoid the web indiscipline and mess)
- integration with (existing) C++ libraries
- Provides plain widgets, which work regardless of JavaScript availability
(but benefit from JavaScript availability), and Wt::Ext widgets (based on
http://extjs.com)
- built in web server
- no need to rewrite yast modules, only to "rework" them

http://www.webtoolkit.eu/ (package available on home:dmacvicar in OBS)

Current problems:
- semantic: when is yast running? daemon? listening? only one session? how
many users?
- threading problems
- completness (implement widgets)

Goal:
- solve the semantic issues
- to be able to login and use very basic functionality of any module

My goal would be to see the YaST network module running, but that might be too
ambicious right now.


Time: proposal 4 days (too much too less?)
When to start? Proposal Nov 12
Who takes care of the pizza?

Should it be based on the new libui or on the old one? I'd vote for the new
one, I'm willing to do the port of the prototype ;-)
