For the past few months we, the openSUSE Board , together with the
great help from Kurt Garloff ,Jan Weber  and Andreas Jaeger ,
held a series of strategy sessions to address the future of openSUSE.
We discussed the role of openSUSE as a community and project and looked
at data from a variety of sources, including the recent openSUSE Survey
 to identify and build a strategy of strength and empowerment within
our community, with a goal of establishing a common unified ground for
answering the question to ourselves and to the world... "Why openSUSE?"
and openSUSE's role in the operating system market, both today and in
After much discussion, we're finally ready to bring together these
important bits of information into a cohesive statement that everyone
can unify around. As such, we, the members of the Strategy Team, will be
meeting in Nuremberg the weekend of May 28th to formalize a draft of our
strategy that will be available publicly for open discussion and comment.
The weekend strategy retreat will be preceded by a General Board Meeting
Friday morning and a Meet & Greet for the general public Friday evening.
If you are in the Nuremberg area or are willing to travel to Nuremberg,
we invite you for a sociable evening of chat and drinks at the
SUSE-Nuremberg offices  at 6:00 p.m.
Meet the Board, members of the openSUSE Boosters team and other SUSE
guys there. We'll do a few short presentations but the focus lays
clearly on communication and having fun.
For more information about our work, please feel free to review our
documents at http://en.opensuse.org/Documents
. And we'll be sure to keep
you informed of our progress results from this exciting retreat.
