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

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"

Hi Pearly,

good to hear that!
Would you like to come over to Nuremberg for the workshop? Yes, I
realize that it is a long way and short notice.

I looked at last year and I was
somewhat dissappointed seeing that you were using yast2-2.9.x. That
is old, it comes from SLES9, released in 2004, and we released
SLES10 in 2006 already. Yesterday openSUSE 11.0 came out having
yast2-2.16.x, and SLES 11 will have 2.17.x.
I mean, if you use a code base that is too old, it will not be
possible to merge your patches to the current development tree.

I understand that you have already started porting for RHEL5, right?
Can you share the source/patches with us?
