second question related to yast++. What license we should use? As I
plan to create initial package, I need specify license ( and packaging
tasks include explicit license checker ). What suggestion do you have?
MIT, BSD or some kind of GPL?

I talked to our licenses expert and want to summarize the outcome of the
discussion: There are a lot of different possibilities and GPL v3 fits
well for yast++. Libraries could be LGPL v3 if they are used by others.
Otherwise GPL v3 is also appropriate.

Do we want others to use our framework libraries and do not open the code?
LGPL might help to distribute yast++ among different system. Anyways I think
GPLv3 should be sufficient.

BTW: Your time settings seems to be wrong. Is your workstation's clock
