Just a short note to let people know about a couple of things which are backing up acceptance into Factory.
1. With the holidays and a lot of people on vacation accepting new Factory submits is a bit backed up more than I like. So, please allow some patience to allow us to catch up. In my queue, the back log is about 135 packages, meaning I'm reviewing packages submitted 18 days ago. Security and maintenance packages always get priority and I personally try to get them checked in within 24 hours or less, provided all the QA checks are good.
2. For new packages which are under legal team review, the backlog is deeper given the sheer numbers (hundreds?) of packages going in to Factory and TW. This a good problem to have as we have more active packagers.
IMO the quality of our packages is getting better and some of our community members are doing an outstanding job keeping them updated. End result a better openSUSE with a wider variety packages never seen before. If you meet an openSUSE packager in real life or virtually, buy them a beer :)
