I'm not so sure in this regard. I think I would oppose that a bit. Not a
general veto, but I'd would like to have a general discussion first if
having Yast (or similar Tools) in Fedora really is a good idea.

I think it might not be a good idea because I suspect it could lead to
bad interactions with our normal configurations tools, RPM-Packages and
(startup)scripts and therefor could do a lot of harm and confusion to
our users.

But that would depend on the quality of the port -- and that does not
exist yet. So it's a theoretical discussion and all speculation at this
point of time.

P.S.: there was a port of yast to debian in the works, but that's
stopped "due to lack of time/resources."
