Bugzilla – Bug 1170886
YaST XML serializer does not work reliably
Last modified: 2022-09-28 12:27:41 UTC
In general issue is that YaST uses its own serializer of data to XML and back. It is used for autoyast and product profiles. Issue is that for some corner cases it does not work reliably and loose data. Example is empty xml element, nil values or non string keys.
We discussed solutions and decision is that object that goes to XML and back should be always same or exception is raises if data is invalid. This needs to adapt XML serializer and also some skelcds and system roles that uses invalid elements which was in past silently ignored.
fixed, see above
