Re: [yast-devel] Direction of YaST Architecture?
Robert,

OK, here is one proposal.

Uses Python with the idea that individual modules are implemented as
Python packages. This would allow us to package each module separately
in a straight forward fashion. Nice granularity which would also benefit
integration with WebYaST.

I fully agree on the goal and architecture of a dynamic, plug-in
implementation.

There exists various examples of such an implementation, most notably
'yum' and 'git'. There you can easily extend the function set by
installing an additional package. The main binary will pick it up at
runtime and make it available to use user.

This is most easily implemented in a dynamic language, Ruby and Python
being the most prominent.
