This is Pearly Zhao from Oracle Linux team. I'm working on porting YaST to RHEL4/EL4 and RHEL5/EL5. The site of YaST on RHEL/EL is at

About YaST on RHEL/EL, only the main modules and some modules we needed are ported. YaST on RHEL4/EL4 has been opened to download and YaST on RHEL5/EL5 will be uploaded soon. The codes will be contributed as soon as possible too.

I think the codes and experience can help YaST on Fedora or other distributions. So I would like to work on "YaST on other Distributions"

Best Regards

The main goal is to move YaST further, both in terms of functionality, but also higher flexibility and more openness. We want to give developers a chance to work on something new, something we often neglected for some time, something cool and also have fun with that.

The details about the workshop can be found here:

As it is supposed to be a team work, I'd like to encourage you to have a look at the ideas, enlist yourself at those you would like to work on and use the time until the workshop to look around the topics and learn new things, possibly using your ITO. The list of ideas is not closed so anybody can expand the list with further ideas.


I've already added two "new" projects [1],[2] and I'd like to encourage you, developers, to add the project you would like to work on or a project you think might really help YaST to become even more useful and user-friendly.

Nobody should force you to work on "Using CIM from YaST modules" or "YaST web user interface" if you don't like to work on these projects, but, for instance, "YaST on other Distributions" sounds promising, doesn't it? :)

Please, try to read through the current projects and pick some and/or write your own there:
It would be also nice if you could write your name to the project you want to work on. If you are unsure, talk to others about it.
