Access to Public WiFi Landing Page During Installation
There is currently no way to configure internet access during installation if installer is using a public wifi hotspot or hotel internet access, as most of them require the user to navigate to a landing page with their browser and accept a set of "Terms and Agreements" prior to being granted access to the network.
The current work-around is to simply not configure internet access during installation and perform a software update after installation when the user can perform the steps above.
One method for implementation is to open a basic web-browser during network configuration, or an option to do so, that points to opensuse.org so that the user can be diverted to the hotel/hotspot landing page if it exists.
Many networks simply look for a cookie on the client's machine indicating that they have accepted the "terms and agreements", so this feature will require cookies to be temporarily stored (think Firefox "secure browsing" or Chromium "incognito" where cookies are stored during the session and then auto-removed at the end of the session).
Many networks require a guest password to be entered, hotels especially (they're handed out at check-in), so there would need to be mouse/keyboard support in the dialog/browser window.
We want this because no one else has it yet and it's great to be first to implement useful functionality.
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
A user is traveling during a release of the operating system and wants to install the new release in the hotel that the user is staying in. Currently, this person will be forced to install offline and then update after installation because of the way most hotel and public internet access sites manage users with a landing page upon first access.
I travel a lot and recently ran into this during the openSUSE 12.3 release. This was the second time that I've had this problem and I can recreate the scenario for testing any time we need to, as I'm frequently traveling.
Update: Here's a schedule of dates that I can test this on a hotel connection with a known landing page that features both an "accept terms and conditions" and guest password entry:
