I am just pondering about the design of the "Details of Registration
Server" dialog, where the user is able to modify the registration
server and to administer needed certificates and I have some
questions about it:
* Do we want to do configuration of registration server via GUI at

No. I don't see this requested and it also wouldn't match our target
audience (unexperienced users).

Well, SMT is able to handle appliances and that is a valid use cases.

Having the registration server configurable in a config file ? I fully

Well,, for appliance, we do not have anything like 'installation parameter'
to set up registration server. We need other means to provide easy way to
adapt this during deployment.

For what is this web yast module? Only for appliances or should it replace
(some day) the current (traditional) yast module?

If it should replace the traditional yast module, the functionallity to change
the registration server URI is required. Customers asked for this and are very
happy, that we have this now in SLE11.
So creating a new module which remove this feature again, is a step back.

And also for the appliance only case we should think about adding this
feature. How many customers using an appliance "feel good" to use an editor or
an commandline tool to change the registration server URL to use its own SMT
