that's my concern, too.

on the hackathon page, there are several listed, which could potentially be
fixed without much work or need some clarification.
But imho, there are no critical ones, but some would be nice to have and
easy to do if the issues around were clarified, as the ones mentioned in this
This is why I'm asking: Which bug reports and patches are worth looking at?
If the new sysinst won't be pulled up to 6.0, you'll have to deal with the
current version of sysinst and its (lack of) features for a few years.
