Hi Dominique,

OSI's bundle will contain all those dependencies that are not within
the standard openSUSE repository.

The basis of the idea of OSI, is that the user will have at least the
standard repository of openSUSE, either because they have their online
version or the version in DVD / CD installation.

Additionally, OSI uses the technology "One Click Install", so it may
recommend as an option the online version that contains the most
current package of what is going to install.

Sorry for my bad english :)

This sounds pretty interesting, but by reading this I end up with a question:
- what if some of the missing dependencies that are not in 'my' repository
are missing on the target system?
1-click-install is usually just getting them and most ymp files simply add
the online repos of openSUSE as repositories (they are probably activated
on almost every system).

So in case I have an 'offline-1-click-setup), I have no way of guaranteeing
that any random library (could be any random library for example). To
guarantee that all this would be working on every single target machine, I'd
have to make the offline-1-click contain all of it's dependencies... and
very soon I would call it a distribution.

Did I miss the crucial part where this was explained?
