I agree with Helen,people love to see their bugs fixed and yes we
have great stability but I think that these days one of the basic
people's criteria is the community.
Under my opinion we must create solid local communities and global community.
Local communities so that people can communicate with other people in
their own language so that they can express their problems more
easily.At that point I suggest to learn from those who already have
strong local communities make it better, innovating if its possible.In
case we need ideas or having any problems on how to make things work I
believe we all make great job here on the mailing lists helping each
other,plus that for example an idea Helen has could be what I might
need in order to get my community one step further
Strengthen our Global community, I believe forum and the wiki are
making a great job but I don't know if that is enough.
that is for now

On the topic of promo DVDs: I notice that live CDs and the distros
that come with magazines are always i386, while I think a lot more
people are using 64 bit now. I assume whoever produces these things
must have data from users though and perhaps know otherwise?

Random marketing thoughts: next time I read "Xdistro is pleased/proud
to announce the release of xyz" I may scream. Will people not
recognize a release announcement if it's not worded that way? ......
openSUSE 11.4 Release Announcement: openSUSE 11.4 is now officially
rolling off the press! Grab your copy while it's hot! Okay so maybe
that's a trifle over the top :)

In terms of what we have to make a noise about: possibly we overlook
the small things - one of the key 'sales points' of openSUSE IMHO is
stability, so things like addressing issues, however unglamorous,
matters. People love to see their bugs fixed, too - to know that their
feedback matters.

I'm still new to this so probably haven't subscribed to the right
lists, but one issue with getting publicity out there is finding the
information - knowing what's being worked on by whom, and what's great
about it. I'll check for developer elists to lurk on. But often this
stuff needs to be translated into less technical language.

1. Right list
2. You have to help us write the next (11.4) release announcement, please!
3. you're rigth (applying to all of your mail, including the "cheers". Not the
Helen, that's a pretty individual thing I'd say.
