please find a first idea of integration of vendor specific modules at:

The idea would be:
Vendor specific modules are represented either with an icon specified by a
vendor or by a generic icon (e.g. yast-vendor.png)
When clicking on the module the vendor specific configuration starts in
fullscreen mode and replaces the webYaST UI completely.
If specified by the vendor a separate login screen is shown. Cancelling the
login dialog returns the user to webYaST "Home".
For changes and navigation within the module the module`s controls are used.
After finishing work with the vendor specific module the module is exited by
clicking either on logout or any other exit option provided within the vendor
specific module. The user then returns to webYaST "Home".
Retrieved from "";

Reasons for this:
* running a module inside YaST GUI leads to a confusing look and feel and a lot
of unclear functionalities (e.g. how to save settings); see slide 4 on
presentation at
* most programms have an exit functionality so why not use it?

Looking forward to your comments!
