[yast-devel] Re: Services UI strikes back
Hi Ancor,

I, for one, would like to applaud your effort on this. You've done a really good job and I really appreciate your work.

Because we have no real feedback from customers or product managers we'll end up having to make a decision based on our best judgement and the information you have provided in this document. If there should be negative feedback in the future about this design we'll know more about the assumptions we've based this decision upon - and learn from them.

So, beyond back-patting, I would say that Option A seems like the best idea. It'll work better across both CLI and GUI interfaces because the UI is not too long/large/cluttered.

Having said that, I am not our customers. Existing users might complain. Important for us is to not immediately jump to conclusions when a few bug reports come in after we change this UI. I'd assume that those who actually like the change will ever have their voice heard. We do need to keep an eye on things and listen to the feedback, bugs and such. We do not need to revert changes just because one or two people loudly express their critic but rather gather the information and again, make an informed (and well documented) decision.

Hope that helps and/or makes sense,

Last week we implemented a prototype of a reusable component to manage
services in YaST modules and applied it to yast-dns-server.

So I updated the infamous "YaST service management" document[1] to show
the two alternatives of usage of the new component. Feedback (from UI
expert or anybody else) is appreciated so we can decide which option
(labeled "A" and "B") in the document is better in general.

The first page of the document is unchanged, so you can skip it if you
already know the problem.
