I have two comments:

1. Speaking of an Apply button: why do we talk about it only for
services and not for YaST in general? I think that it would make more

Because it's already there for several services. Maybe not called
"apply" but named as "save settings and restart", "start now" (which I
assume saves the settings before starting) and so on.

2. I still cannot suppress the expectation that when I configure a
service and make it enabled, it will be enabled when applying (or
finishing the module0 as well as after reboot - and that would be
controlled by a single UI widget.

That's what leaded to the proposal being implemented in this sprint (not
very usable but quite explicit). Expectations were different for
different people. :-)

I started to implement this UI for yast-dns-server and I need some
veteran's feedback.

Looks like most similar modules are implemented using Wizard (sometimes
through CWM::DialogTree), which means only 3 buttons, namely back, abort
and next.

For dns-server I could abuse the slot of the back button (seems it
wouldn't be the first time[1]). But looking at the screenshots at

it looks that wouldn't be a generic solution, since I can see some
"back" buttons there (most of them disabled, but still a problem).

Any chance of getting my "apply" button in a generic way keeping the
usage of Wizard and CWM::DialogTree?
