More HyperKitty frustration. :(
I couldn't find what I needed, because I couldn't find what I needed: vast (too
much) whitespace, up to 4 lines per list, openSUSE cluttering an estimated 90% of
the lists (aka redundant, pointless), and a measly 10 items per page default.
There aren't enough sort criteria on https://lists.opensuse.org/archives/.
"Name" (alpha) is not alphabetic. Logically the alpha sort should be on the
subject matter noun, not a modifier like openSUSE or Chinese.
Shouldn't there should be separate groups for non-openSUSE, and for alternate
languages, to keep the list(s) short enough to actually be able to find what's
appropriate when the actual list name is unknown? Maybe those EN groups for which
alternate languages exist could provide a link to the appropriate lang listing page.
I went there looking for a support EOL notice for 15.1, but the (openSUSE)
announce list has only two posts in it since July, one of which is the premature
15.1 EOL notice.
What's the list suited to opensuse.org design and maintenance? www, web and
internet are mostly or entirely absent, while opensuse.org is part of every list,
thus unsuited as a search term.
Evolution as taught in public schools, like religion,
is based on faith, not on science.

Hi forum admins (and fellow heroes),
On behalf of the openSUSE Heroes team, I'd like to inform you that I'm
working on upgrading the software stack running the openSUSE Forum
I have set up a test server to demo the result of the upgrade:
Please take a look at it, and give me feedback on your thoughts.
As you will quickly notice, the visual appearance of the demo server is
not right. That's because our custom theming on the current forum
server is incompatible with newer versions of vBulletin, so it can't be
reused, unfortunately. In my opinion, upgrading the production server
is blocked until a new theme has been created - do you agree? (At the
very least, the logo must be replaced, and more green would be nice,
Since I'm not very familiar with frontend technology, I'd appreciate
getting some help with this. Would anyone (any community member) like
to help recreate the openSUSE styling for the new forum? Also, does
anyone know who created the original custom styling for the forums?
Other than the loss of styling, migration of all forum content works as
expected and without error, as far as I can tell. But of course, if
anyone finds any migration issues, especially with forum content,
please let me know.
Looking forward to hear your feedback.
The current software stack running the forums is:
* vBulletin 4.2
* PHP 5.5
* SLES 12 SP5
The upgrade will migrate the forum server to the following stack:
* vBulletin 5.6
* PHP 7.4
* openSUSE Leap 15.2
The current forum server works, of course, but is based on rather old
More importantly, it isn't administered by the SaltStack configuration
used to manage most other openSUSE infrastructure - and likely never
will be in its current state. This makes it very cumbersome, and a bit
risky, for the Heroes team to maintain, and is one of the main
motivations for upgrading.
After reading the latest news on news.opensuse.org , I'm asking myself if we might schedule some workshops to gather a bit more attention?
Topics that are currently in my mind are - of course - related to our infrastructure setups.
* schedule 30min slots (maybe recurring)
* coordinate with the real admins/ developers behind a service to be at least present during the workshop
* use our meet.o.o instance
* use the screen sharing feature to show either a presentation or the console on our machines
* walk through our infrastructure hosts/services one by one (one service per workshop)
This might help to gather some people's interest. Maybe this might even be a starting point for additional ideas (like wiki documentation or best-practices docs or training material).
What do you think?
If the feedback is positive, I volunteer to lead the first workshop - and leave the topic to you :-)
We could also collect some topics in the openSUSE wiki (somewhere in the team space maybe?).
here is an announcement from the SUSE EngInfra team.
What: We want to update our UCS identity provider that is used for
When: tomorrow 2021-01-21 08:00 - 13:00 UTC
Why: to be on the latest version, to get features and bugfixes
Who: me+jdsn, possibly with other EngInfra collegues
What to expect:
During parts of that time, no user updates (creation, password, email
changes etc) will be possible.
https://idp-portal.suse.com/ will just show "under maintenance" then.
We made preparations so that authentication can continue everywhere all
the time, but since this is not well tested, users could experience some
login problems during the update.
I tried searching the hyperkitty archives (the ARM list) for the results
of the ARM survey from last year, but if I search for e.g. "survey", I
get exactly one hit (six months old), rather than Doug Demaio's posting
from December titled "ARM survery results meeting" ??
