Hola opensuse users! (and yast hackers)

If you're using YaST ncurses interface, you might have already noticed that
currently there is no support for tab widgets there (i.e. ncurses equivalent
of Qt TabBar, see some screenshots here: ). Instead, quite a
clumsy workaround with push buttons or radio buttons is used in some modules

I'm looking for someone who would write tab support for yast2-ncurses library,
in other words, add a C++ class for tab widget into YaST ncurses UI. Ideally,
I'd like it to be someone from openSUSE community :)

With current mod-ui (which is a new UI engine in openSUSE 11) it could be
pretty simple and straightforward. You don't need to know anything about
ncurses programming (actually, you'll see none, or the very minimum of
libncurses code when coding the class). What you really need is:

* knowledge object-oriented programming in C++
* at least some awareness about UI events and event handlers

So if you are e.g. an university student looking for simple C/C++ assignment
(that you could 'recycle' at school ;-) ), or if you're looking for a way how
to spend your ITO, or if you just want to help to improve your favourite
UI ;-) just drop me an e-mail ev. ping me on freenode IRC #yast channel.
I'm going to assist you with coding and provide all the information you'd
