New and Improved Text UI

Summary

The current text UI in the installer is difficult to improve and extend as we add features to the GUI. We really don't want to be maintaining two complicated UIs.

Detailed Description

We have discussed changes to the text mode UI to make it more of a question and answer form, perhaps involving kickstart commands. This is very early, not fleshed out, and not currently targeted for any release. If someone is interested in working on this, please contact anaconda-devel-list@redhat.com to begin the discussion. Lots of ideas are needed given that some processes are not easily developed as Q&A.

Benefit to Fedora

Currently the text UI is a place where a lot of bugs and unwanted situations have the potential to occur. A direct benefit to fedora is the reduction of the anaconda code base (less is more). Moreover it gives the anaconda development team a change to concentrate on the anaconda backend and the graphical GUI.
