Yast Partitioning give SSD best practice option
More and more laptops, netbooks, pc's, servers, actually anything with some kind of storage need is equipped with Solid State Disks.
Although at first glance they may seem quite similar to harddisks, they really are a completely different species with some very different characteristics.
It might be convenient for having an "SSD Best practise enabler" switch when creating partitions on disks in Yast, which would then automatically setup the features (and possibly others) mentioned in the "Why do we want this" part of this feature.
Especially in the partitioning stage of the installation process one can make or break the extra performance one might gain from using SSD's.
Especially aligning a filesystem to SSD erase block size and enabling TRIM on partitions are really noticeable performance enhancers.
Also, when the SSD option is activated, the Swap partition would be suggested to be removed from the partition setup (if one is set).
Set user benefit
You can add different relations here, for example duplicate features, obs projects, urls...
To embedd an image you can simply upload it to paste.opensuse.org and add a relation to its raw url.
Set release notes
During installation (or partition editing) when a user configures a partition, the option would be presented to enable SSD Best practises.
