Hi Ladislav,
thank you for the great implementation and the nice docu.
It looks very good !

I have two additional questions:

"Each exported function (actually its action ID) must be defined in a PolicyKit configuration file. See PolicyKit documentation . *Defining a PolicyKit action ID means that the function is officially supported over the DBus service.*
It is a good idea to validate the PolicyKit config during /make check/, just add /check-local/ target to / "

- Would it be possible to generate the PolicyKit configuration files automatically while running make ? So the package maintainer would not have to take care.
- The main problem while using SCR:execute in combination with the YaST command line interface is the speed. Have you already tested how long it takes to e.g. add a user or
get a list of local users ?

Hi all,

I'd like to announce the Yast DBus service which is now available in SVN Trunk
and in
FACTORY. You just need to install yast2-core-2.18.7 package [*].

The new service can export every Yast name space, even non YCP modules like
(Perl) or Pkg:: (C++).

This service should be used as the base component for our new Yast Web

For more information look at

I'm looking forward to your feed back.

[*] Actually the service was initially submitted in yast2-core-2.18.6, but I
did a
very small API change in 2.18.7.
