note Fate #303688 related: packaging CFT. I am not sure CFT is the right way to provide this functionality, but a consideration is that an admin using CFT will probably log both manual-editing and YaST-driven conf changes via the same tool.

Duncan, Jiri, this might be an architectural change, please, look into this. Also, we might need to define scope of which changes we are able to track.

Martin, please, have a look at possibilities to record all changes and suggest an infrastructure.

Federico, we will hardly be able to make all modules record all the changes they do. Could you, please, give us some priorities for SLE11?

Sure: network, users+groups would be a start.

This looks like a superset of Feature #100386. Note that that one was downgraded because it is large (it requires touching all YaST modules).

Please, look into enabling of the stuff, not covering all YaST modules.

Indeed. Look at this architecturally. Also please keep in mind that the maintainer of CFT will help in getting that too to work on SLE (eventually, not for 11 GA timeframe), so please keep in mind these logs could feed into CFT eventually (and we would not want to change too much to make that happen :-)

Infrastructure is in, module using it will come later.
