The openSUSE team has been working on documenting the openSUSE Development process. As we've documented the release process before  it was now time for the work done up to the first Beta: the Factory Development. There exist a Factory Development Model page  on the wiki, giving a very high level overview of how we collaborate (with devel projects, staging projects and our governance). We added a short summary to it but the more extensive documentation can be found on the Development Process page . It is a complicated process so the documentation is extensive.
We nonetheless hope you have time to have a look and give us feedback on it.
Thanks and have a lot of fun, The openSUSE team
