Description Pat Riehecky 2015-10-09 14:49:20 EDT
Description of problem:
Currently a large number of anaconda parms can be set via the boot line.  It would be helpful if there was a standardized way for anaconda addons to be passed information in this manner.

Perhaps something like:
vmlinuz inst.addon.com_example_foo.argument=example vmlinuz inst.addon.com_example_foo.secondargument=anotherexample

as equal to
%addon addon.com_example_foo --argument=’example’ --secondargument='anotherexample'

Version-Release number of selected component (if applicable):anaconda-24.3-1.fc24

How reproducible:100%

Steps to Reproduce:
1.Request for new feature

Actual results:
No provided hooks for anaconda addons to parse out boot line parameters

Expected results:
Some method for passing parameters into an addon from the boot line

Additional info:
The content of 
%addon com_example_foo
doesn't seem rational for the boot line, but the addon args seem viable.
