Hi Jiri,

I hope it is not too late for two more comments:

Not at all :-)

First, we might extend the text styleguide also to cover helps, in particular
emphasizing paragraph titles. I think that this is important especially for
proofreaders, since helps are a major part of all texts.

Currently the style guide content about help is:

Is help also covered by a library? (couldn't find one on or

What would be necessary to mention in the style guide?
(e.g. use meaningful paragraph titles or something?, font properties?)

Second, regarding Configuration Wizard dialog:

Ouch! You are right. That was a mistake (and just another good example
why it makes sense to be careful when dealing with copy & paste :-)

I changed the passage in the wizards to:
"Cancel - Closes the window and returns to the overview."

And added the phrase about Cancel and Close behavior to the general
layout section:

"If the user presses "Cancel" or "Close" in the window decoration the
module is closed. If the user made some changes, a warning pop up
appears, which asks the user, if he really wants to discard his changes. "

What about necessary changes in YaST libraries?
Should I put them into FATE?

The two changes I can think of are:
* to make ConfirmAbort look like
* replacing "Abort" label with "Cancel" in wizardycp

Thanks and cu,
