I don't think there need to be a tutorial about "How to use YaST" :)))

you think badly.

please don't worry. I just jumped a little too fast on the keyboard and,
reading my mail, I find it too (much too) harsh.

I appreciate greatly your work. I only think you underestimate the need
of documentation

Easy :)

It's true that several YaST modules would need help from our users. Yes,
we are well aware of that and we are constantly pushing hard to make our
modules more and more useful.

Some examples:
* Fully-open our development SVN (the newest YaST source code)
(we accept patches)
* Fully-open YaST documentation
(we accept patches)
* Generated documentation at
* Fully-open IRC (
* Fully-open yast-devel@xxxxxxxxxxxx maililing-list

However, it's also true that our view is a bit shaded by the knowledge
we have. We'd appreciate if the community helped us to see what they
don't understand well, why is that hard to understand, and how to
improve the current state.

What we need is the users' feedback, ideas, opinions, or even patches
;), ...

As you certainly know, I've asked the openSUSE community what they
wanted from YaST SSH Configuration module, I wanted to hear their
opinion on the current implementation, labels, helps, etc. There hasn't
been much feedback, but frankly, YaST SSHD is almost 'unused' YaST module ;)

For the YaST documentation, there is a openSUSE manual available and
also WIKI page for every single YaST module:

Your example (YaST Printer):

Well, tell us what you want :) Please.

Thanks and Bye
