Re: [yast-devel] Changing the Attitude to Coding YaST

Response from the developer in me:

You crazy. I will never pick up a language without a debugger. Life
is too short to be using print statements. I don't have the time or
bandwidth to even figure out where I would need to put a print statement?
If I run into a problem, I would love to attach to a process and figure
out what it's doing. It's the fastest way to learn a complex system like
Yast without having to spend hours and hours walking code.

The dilemma we are in right now is:
On the one hand we want to attract more people to develop YaST modules, we
want to make it easy for them so they love to code YaST modules.
On the other hand we want to switch our own language YCP and stick to a common
used language and gain their debugger, testing infrastructure ... aso.

Now we need to figure out how much time we want to spend on both of this
(without making anyone angry because he had hard time learning YCP and then we
drop it in favour of the new language).
