[opensuse-testing] Weekly News for September 24 (Revised)
The next meeting of the Testing Core Team will be September 26, 2011 at 17:00 UTC on Channel #opensuse-testing on the Freenode IRC Network (irc://irc.freenode.net/opensuse-testing). Our preliminary agenda includes our experiences with 12.1 Beta, and a discussion of the Beta Pizza Party.

As 12.1 is not yet in a condition deemed worthy of being called a Beta, it has not been released; however, a rolling update from the Factory repos has my main system working quite well. I no longer have any problems with systemd and the KDE plasmoid NetworkManager applet is now working. It asks for authentication a bit too frequently - I do not think the permissions are right yet, but the applet does not crash, and it is possible to connect reliably to my wireless network.

Of great interest to kernel developers, the community has been able to keep working at getting kernel 3.1 in condition for its release, and getting ready for the merge of 3.2, even though kernel.org, the main site for development, has been down while the site recovers from a penetration incident. If kernel development were not using git, a distributed version control system, the impact would have been much worse. I am amazed that when the main server went down for an extended period, the work barely paused. Kudos to github.com and infradead.org for providing server space for the two repositories that I use regularly.
