[opensuse] City of Munich
The City of Munich is currently collecting data to plan their next
upgrade strategy. As many of you may know they are still on an old
Ubuntu LTS customized build with KDE 3.5.

If anyone is located near Munich now would be a great time to attempt
to schedule a presentation give to the city council on the benefits of
migrating to openSUSE 13.1 with KDE 4 for their next desktop rollout!

Munich has been known to both fund development in LibreOffice as well
as locally develop as well!

OBS would be great to showcase to them and this could possibly get us
some new packagers/maintainers.

The OBS LibreOffice repo hosting The Fresh release build would also be
great for Munich from recent reports that they are migrating to LO
from AOO and funding LO development work.

Munich runs multiple different heavily tweaked desktop builds as such
Kiwi Imaging and Automated Installation would also be great to include
as well.

Data at rest security would be another great topic as YaST as well as
The OpenSUSE installation medium make it very easy to encrypt
partitions with LUKS and Ubuntu's graphical tools are still limited.

Currently The City Council is working with The City Library to
distribute older Ubuntu CD's. It would be great to schedule an
openSUSE event with The Library and get The Ambassadors out in full
force for a weekend openSUSE/SUSE Linux Expo. Getting some openSUSE
books into circulation in The Library as well would be great.

openSUSE will also work with Novell ZenWorks which they could leverage
to have enterprise management features, but Munich does make it known
they want community FLOSS solutions.

This would be a great opportunity to get some great press for SUSE/openSUSE!

SuSE was always a favorite and well utilized GNU/Linux distro in
Germany and EU and this name recognition and the fact that openSUSE
boxed versions are available may also help with the political issues
taking place as well.

It could be good to cover openSUSE Edu spin as well and showcase how
it can be utilized in The City of Munich Schools or even at The City
of Munich Public Library for students to access.

Has there been any action from The openSUSE community to engage The
City of Munich so far?
