The last two weeks of August the YaST team has kept the same modus operandi than the rest of the month, focusing on fixing bugs and polishing several internal aspects. But we also found some time to start working on some mid-term goals in the area of AutoYaST and storage management. Find below a summary of the most interesting stuff addressed during the sprint finished a week ago (sorry for the delay).
- Making the AutoYaST profiles more flexible by means of Embedded Ruby (ERB). That’s still a work in progress and we will publish a separate blog post with more details and examples soon.
- When reporting errors in a certain element of an AutoYaST profile to the user, do it with the same syntax that is used when specifying ask-lists.
- Preliminary version of a menu bar for the Partitioner. Again, this is still in progress, so stay tuned for more news.
- Better handling of corrupted or completely incorrect AutoYaST profiles.
Although it doesn’t look like too much, the bright side is that we are already deep into the next sprint. So you will not have to wait much to have more news from us. Meanwhile, stay safe and fun!
