Hi all,

During the past openSUSE Conference, some members of the YaST team
(Áncor, Christopher, HuHa, Knut, Josef and myself -alphabetical
order, excuse me if I forgot anyone) discussed about YaST2 code

The outcomes of such a discussion are summarized in this document:

Obviously the discussion is still open so, please, feel free to
comment and bring up new ideas.


OK, few notes:

- I think it is good idea to also use oppurtinity when you are in
Prague and discuss it also there, maybe more ideas or previously not
seen issues appear

- problem with UI is not that it is too generic, but that it often use
Yast::UI which creates nasty name collision and confusion if
Y2User::UI will use Yast::UI

- in the end we discuss that such require layer is maybe not so useful
and can cause some confusion, so maybe if we still use import, it
indicate we use some legacy module and not common ruby library

- regarding nested classes we also discussed usage of rubocop to detect
it and report it as issue if it is not marked as private

- regarding move of lib to /usr/share/Yast2/lib there is still question
what to do with Y2UPDATE? maybe add it by default to ruby load PATH?
