[yast-devel] yast style guide

Hi everybody,

after some discussion and work I would like to present a first draft of
a YaST style guide to you:
http://en.opensuse.org/Image:Ysg.pdf

The intention of the style guide is NOT to dictate every pixel in every
module but to make some basic actions and behaviors consistent which
increases usability.

The work was mostly done by Lukas (locilka) and me.
Nonetheless this is just a draft and I would like to see it as a base
for further discussion.
First of all because two people cannot represent the large variety of
opinions you all have and what all of you consider as acceptable.
A style guide which is not supported by you, the developers, is IMHO
useless (and we already have one useless style guide :-))

So:
* Do you think the extent of the current draft is sufficient?
* Which issues are missing?
* Which ones should be removed?
* Are there any contentwise issues you object/agree upon?

I am looking forward to you comments!


Cu,

Martin
