Quite a big part of openQA is testing the installation of SUSE products. All of them are installed by YaST. So a big quantity of problems found during openQA testruns are YaST problems.
To find out what has gone wrong during installation YaST developers need to download the tarball containing the logs, unpack it and find the y2log among many other log files. That makes it quite complicated to just have a quick view on a problem.
To speed that up I want to implement an automated unpack-and-show functionality right in the openQA WebUI to be able to just point and click onto a y2log to show it – ideally including error-level highlighting and a simple filter and search mechanism.
