I'd like to give big thanks to all of you who have participated in the
survey, the data is pure gold. I'd also like to give thanks to
openSUSE Release team who helped to make this survey happen and those
of you who went with me through all of the feedback.
Cumulated notes from review during past two days can be found here

doubled over past 12 months. There seems to be still a lot of ARMv7
devices around, and people on these devices care about Leap. Based on
this feedback openSUSE Release team is now looking into ways how to
bootstrap openSUSE Leap 15.3 for ARMv7. We don't want to let our users

(sound etc.). We will also see what can be done the multilib libraries.

Next step is that we will process the notes in a closer loop and will
make sure to open features, bugs, poo tickets, contact right people to
make sure we can be seen as one of the fine tuned distributions for all
of these devices.
The optional email contacts we've received as part of the survey will
be kept within the openSUSE release team.
I hope you we will find a great use for the data.
Thank you once again.
