Add Smart GUI Monitor Application

Feature state

Description

This GUI version has been around for a long time but only exists as an unstable version:
gsmartcontrol - Hard disk drive health inspection tool
GSmartControl is a graphical user interface for smartctl (from smartmontools pac kage), which is a tool for querying and controlling SMART (Self-Monitoring, Anal ysis, and Reporting Technology) data on modern hard disk drives. It allows you t o inspect the drive's SMART data to determine its health, as well as run various tests on it.
http://software.opensuse.org/package/gsmartcontrol
------

It would be nice if this could be reviewed and possibly promoted to a stable status and included in the stable repository and possibly even installed by default and an entry added to the System - Monitor menu.

User benefit:

The GUI version is much easier for a novice to find and use.

Usecase

SMART is very useful in checking your disk health and current status but openSUSE only offers a command line version that isn't simple to use.
