I don't understand why you moved from git to svn instead of moving it from opensuse git to another hit service.

Can you explain the background of this choice? I think even if we want to make libyui idstro independent, the YaST team will be still the main contributor, and the team having an opinion on where to host the code is important. I did not see anything bad with or Lot of redhat projects are distro independent and still hosted at But going to svn is a step backwards.

While I don't think the decision of moving to autotools is bad, because the rest of YaST is autotools and cmake was never fully accepted, your statement is not correct. Cmake includes pkgconfig integration. Sorry, but when taking such decisions (build system, hosting), If I could not get something working, I would have asked others first for help.
