(1) Build rpms for SUSE using BitBake =====================================
BitBake and OpenEmbedded is an advanced package building environment based on simple recipes and package classes. sbrabec works on a setup that will allow to build packages for openSUSE there.
(2) lib64 default in autoconf's configure ========================================= ./configure: Default to lib64.
It is possible to default to /usr/local/lib64 while calling ./configure without arguments. Should it be done by default? 
(3) RPM version for popcon: popcorn ===================================
prusnak wrote a popularity-contest alternative for RPM distros. This was announced on . However this package could not be submitted to Factory now, because we have no server to send the results to. Prusnak sent an e-mail to Peter Poeml, but he is probably on vacation, so we have to wait further
(4) Installation of restricted content proposal =============================================== Sometimes is necessary install a content which is under some restrictions (patents, copyrights) which prevents us to include it to openSUSE, but is necessary for our users. Two biggest examples are: multimedia support and device drivers (firmware).
puzel wrote a proposal of ease installation of restricted software for openSUSE.
