Dear friends,

I have made a page describing the tasks to do for the openSUSE
conference. Input is welcome, especially of the kind "I will do
that". IOW feel free to add things, especially if it's your name
behind a task!

'on the ground', as in at the conference, we need at least 5-7 peeps
to cover the tracks, make good photo's for flickr and articles and
take care of the press. Who feels up for it?

Check the plan:


Ping-pong again - any promo peeps going to the conference, please add
your name at the bottom of this piratepad please. There's a bunch of
tasks and I'd love to know if and for what you are available. Most
notable tasks - someone who is responsible for twitter and such;
someone to make pictures we can use in articles; and people who can
take some notes on cool things which are happening for articles.

Who's up for it?

Seems it's only you and me ;-(. I'll try to load my press kit tomorrow
on my bike ;)

So, will anybody besides the two of us attend the marketing bof on


i have a question but not sure if i's on topic or not , as i saw that Bof
meant "Informal discussion meetings" this might fit in : i recently had an
internet provider change and thus no possibilty to refresh and upgrade my
11.3 opensuse desktop since 1 month. After using #zypper ref && zypper up
from init 3 i had some cheksum problems with 2 packages. I notice that
this kind of problem frequently appears . - The choice given is to abort,
retry or ignore. Why is ignore offered when i might break some unknown
dependencies ? i wrongly chose to ignore python-sip and i ended up with a

Please file a bug report for this - or ask on the factory mailint list.
Marketing mailing list is the wrong point.

broken suse (kdeinit4 would not start anymore). - The fact that checksum
went wrong stopped my upgrade and as i did not want to break things so i
stopped completely the upgrade and dis not know what to do...untill i
looked at the zypper man and found the zypper cc possibility to clear
cache ; which did the trick and allowed me to refresh my repositories and
upgrade all 254 packages (a bit less after a few trials).

Well, this kind of thing is certainly happening a lot of time in many
homes and workplaces. As clearing cache solved it all i was wondering why

It should not - we had a hardware failure and that was the result. IF this
still occurs, please tell me off-list with details of package name and mirror.

is this kind of error (wrong checksum) -or any error linked with a wrong
cache- not automatically followed by a zypper cc command to clear cache
and follow up ? May be it's already know and on tracks but i'm sure there
would be plenty of interesting things to do automatically to improve
zypper solving/upgrading even more (and zypper is already Excellent!).NB :
i know cache is usually the place that is not cleared often, but sometimes
it helps a lot ;)
